Hey HerpCenter! My names Noah, and I just happened to get my hands on this absolutely gorgeous female Hypo Hogg Island Boa about 2 weeks ago. I acquired a 20 gallon long for her, and the lighting I have now is a full Spectrum 11W bulb (the spiral looking bulb) for getting her started on a day/night schedule, as where I have her right now in the hallway on a stand she is not by a window for daylight like my BP is. As well as one of those purple heat bulbs, I think 50 watt (I know, I know stay away from colored bulbs... also have a heating pad, possibly better?). I also have for humidity a Vicks Humidifier in the room relatively close to and on the same level as her cage so that the humidity will fall into the cage. I got her on the 22nd, the guy I got her from was feeding live mice ever 5-7 and had fed her the night before I got her, and she happily ate a f/t mouse on the 27th. As of right now I do not have a way of testing temps or humidity in her cage, I just ordered a tempgun, and a hygrometer for her cage as well as a perch from LLL Reptile (and some little things not worth typing lol). I am using paper towels as a substrate for the time being because like I said her cage setup is temporary until my order comes in. My concern is that she is not getting the correct humidity right now, as she just entered her first shed cycle since I've gotten her (I will post pics and when I get home after work) and I want her to be able to shed correctly if I cannot get my equipment in time. She is absolutely gorgeous and the Times I have handled her she has been MORE then docile for the rep baby boas have, she isnt the slightest bit head shy and VERY, very curious. I am sorry about my being so naive in this lol, this is just my first boa and she is such an amazing animal I just want her to thrive in the environment I provide, which I feel is less than satisfactory right now. I will post pics or her setup, as well as some of her before she started her shed as soon as I get home today, as I'm at school posting this right now and I have work after. Looking forward to reading responses, thanks again HerpCenter!!
