Hey All!! As stated, this will be a lengthy post as I have a few questions regarding a few different boa subspecies. I will be building a few new cages in the next few months (5 cages in 2 months to be exact) and one of them will be a 6x3x2 cage for a large boa! I'm rather excited, I've wanted a boa for a long time. And this will probably be my only large snake for a very long time. I originally was planning on a yellow anaconda, but I really want an extremely docile and trustworthy snake that I can confidently take to my preschool class and give to models at my dads photography studio. And honestly I'm not really ready for a conda. So here's what I'm looking for, I want a large boa (I'm hoping for the 10ft range) with mostly blacks and whites in colloration. Boa c. Longicauda is the perfect colloration, I am in love with those boas. But they are somewhat of a dwarf species and stay around 6-7 ft. Next I looked at anery motley BCI's. They can be rather gorgeous as well, but I'm not sure where an adult female would be size wise. I'm not going to power feed, I would just like something that will attain a large and healthy size. So my research led me to argentine boas, BCO. They are supposedly the largest boa subspecies, and can be found in mostly black colloration. Their pattern is not very pronounced, and I would prefer a striking high contrast pattern, but I think I would be happy with a BCO. In a perfect world, I would have a 10ft BCL with high black/white contrast lol. (Ok let's be honest, in a perfect world I would have a breeding pair or Boelen's Pythons, but that's a different story) Also I have a question regarding feeding. I have read that feeding rabbits and guinea pigs as soon as possible will result it massive growth. So instead of medium rats, I could start ordering baby rabbits and stick with rabbits for the life of the snake. My question is, is that akin to power feeding? Should rabbits be reserved for snakes that are too large for the largest rats? Even if I maintain a healthy feeding schedule and proper temps and excersize time out of the cage, are rabbits too fatty for a snake that would be happy with rats? That's for reading all this guys!! Ill post a few pics of the boas and collorations I'm talking about later, I'm on my phone right now and I don't know that I can do all that from here lol.
