I've recently purchased a colombian rainbow boa from a local pet store a few days ago. I purchased him to rescue him. He's less than a year old, and both of his eyes are completely gone. It's sad to see. His humidity was very low to none at the pet shop and they said he lost his eyes due to bad sheds. However, I spoke with a rainbow boa breeder and they said a snake should not lose their eyes due to bad sheds. What could cause this snake to lose his eyes? I kept his humidity high, around 90% and I'm worried now he might have a respiratory infection. How long in poor conditions would it take to develop and RI? Did I give this to him or did he maybe get it from the pet store? I've only had him for 4 days. I read before I purchased him that baby rainbow boas like their humidity around 90 - 95 percent, but now I'm seeing on other sites that it should be kept at about 80. Also, I'm using All Living Things Tropical Cypress Bedding. It's mostly little pieces of wood, like wood chips. Lodged in a few of his scales are dark spots which could be mites. I am familiar with mites, because when I got my red tail boa he was invested with mites and I had to cure him of that. But could these black things be pieces of bedding stuck in him? It's hard for me to turn him upside down and try to get a clear look at the things in his scales. I'd push one out but I don't want to disturb him any further for awhile. I'm taking him to the vet by the way, either tomorrow (tuesday) or sometime this week. Thank you to whoever can help!
