I have a six-year old female boa. She has been to the vet in Apple Valley before, he didn't say anything. But she saw a new vet in Barstow and he said it was not good that the inside of her mouth was so pale. He said it should be a healthy pink (like the ball python's mouth's inside was, a reddish pink). The inside of Silk's mouth was sort of pinkish white. She has 55-60 percent humidity, 80 and 95 degree hot spots and an overall ambient of 60-70 right now. Her ambient should rise with the house temp over time. Her cage has an overhead heater and an UTH. The ball python is kept in similar conditions. I've never seen the inside of a boa's mouth before other than mine. Is she okay or was the vet trying to get more money out of me? As far as I am aware she doesn't have a respiratory illness (no bubbling, foaming, or wheezing).
