    Thank you for giving me the opportunity.

    So far, the two beasts are doing well. I feel bad for not actually meeting the couple who had them, however, it was a little late for me to get permission (Call or email me and I'll give you the details on this.) to travel the distance.

    Hopefully, I'll be able to display them in an enclosure such as they have, kind of a waste making it into a book shelf..

    The plus of being a college student - Nothing ties up the living room, except more enclosures..

    Thanks again,

    You are very welcome Zane....make me proud. They can be quite a handful....please practice safety precautions.

    Which one is that.....Miss Muffet or Hanzel?

    I give mine two f/t jumbo rats every other week, but mine's not quite that big. If it seems like he's getting humgray I may adjust, but for now I can't bring myself to buy frozen rabbits.

    They have been fed live rabbits, every 6 weeks. And they were not fed together in the same enclosure. Hansel was fed in his cage and Miss Muffet was fed in an outdoor pen.

    Jay I'm like you, I had an 8 ft boa and everyone kept telling me to switch to rabbits or chicks and I just couldn't bring myself to. I would just how many Jumbos she got.

    Only a few days here, the two animals seem to have taken a liking to the new enclosures.

    Here is the male taking a F/T rabbit.

    The female, which I'm told has not eaten since Thanksgiving, ate a F/T rabbit as well; Hers was in the bathtub after soaking (water drained). I wasn't betting on her eating, but felt I should give it a try.

    She didn't care for us to watch (So no photos) so we shut the lights off and closed the door and a few minutes later, gone; I'm assuming the rabbit didn't wander off.

    Both ate F/T and needed no attempt at pretending as if the rabbits were alive. (6lbs)

    Thought I should update.

    Thank you for the update.

    It's great to hear they are eating for you and willing to eat f/t. Also that they are adjusting to their new homes.

    Good job Zane !!

    Sorry if I sound ignorant but could someone please tell me what f/t means???

    They are truly gorgeous snakes that you have rehomed Zane, a bit too large for my liking though. Anything that has the potential to eat me and my kids is a no no lolol. It's a shame none of you are in the UK as my brother is trying to rehome his 10' common boa at the moment and I am sure if you were over here, one of you would give him a loving home. Good luck with them Zane :)

    Frozen/Thawed. It refers to the type of mice being fed to a snake. Frozen, and then thawed. The others are F/K (fresh killed) and live.
