Hey guys! Well, I have two ball pythons, and I'm looking to get another snake. I wanted another ball, but my boyfriend likes variety so we went through our options and settled on a Brazilian Rainbow Boa. From what I was able to figure out they seem to be pretty easy to care for as well as generally well-mannered; but I wasn't able to really find any good care sheets for the little buggers. I looked, but the one care sheet I found seemed to be the same one copy-pasted and posted on several different sites. In a nutshell, it wasn't really helpful. So now I come to you, my fellow herpers, with some questions regarding the handling and care of these guys. 1. As I mentioned above, from what I read BRBs seem to have a decent temperament. Is this true? Will I be able to take out my BRB on a daily/every other day basis and hold it without fearing it's going to bite me? I know each animal has a different personality; I'm asking on a general level, and I know about handling during shedding/eating. 2. We were going to get one (1) originally, but we might get two. Is it okay to house BRBs together? Additionally, I have a 10 gallon tank I was thinking about using; would this be an acceptable size for a hatchling? Two hatchlings? We would, of course, upgrade to something bigger at the earliest possible time we could or when it is necessary. 3. From what I've read the housing and temperature is pretty similar to that of a ball pythons'; two hides, hot side, cool side, water dish, something to climb on, and substrate. Also, I read that the warm temperature should be about 90 degrees and the cool side about 80 degrees, with a slight drop at night being acceptable. Additionally, I read that the humidity should be between 70-80% and that it should never drop down to or lower than 50%, and that a "humidity box" should always be in the cage in case the snake needs it or wants it. Also, BRBs don't need a specific photoperiod, do they? Our regular 12h light 12h dark should suffice. Is this all correct? 4. As far as feeding goes, I've read that babies should be started on mice and upgraded to rats as soon as possible. Basically like a ball python, correct? Offer the snake a meal that is about or slightly bigger than the biggest part of it's body excluding the head, and offer rats asap because they're nutritionally better for the snake. 5-7 days for babies and about every two weeks for adults, moving up in size when the meal ceases to make a noticeable bulge in the snake's body. Correct? Sorry for my long-winded paragraphs, guys. But thanks so much for the help. I take pride in my snakes and caring for them properly is a very serious matter to me, so I want to make sure I'm doing everything right or at least know how to do everything right before I purchase the snake(s). Oh, also any stories about experiences with your BRBs would be very much welcomed. Thanks again guys!!!!!
