    Hi all,
    New member here- I joined today because I'm a new snake parent so I needed a place to rant and ask for advice. I just adopted a common boa from a friend who wanted to rehome him due to not giving him enough attention. Turns out he has a bad respiratory infection and is underweight and there was a lot wrong with his husbandry- but I'll save that for another thread so as not to clog up the introduction thread. It's been a long couple of weeks with my new boa buddy and it's going to be a long uphill journey to good health. Other than the health problems that we're seeing a vet for, he's absolutely perfect and an amazing animal and I'm glad we found each other. I'm happy to meet other people in the hobby who enjoy these animals as much as I do.

    Welcome, I am sorry to hear about the state of your snake though. I hope he recovers quickly and well for you.

    They're so interesting. He literally just began shedding today- I checked on him a few minutes ago and he's rubbing his nose on his hide. Fingers crossed for a good shed after all he's been through.
