    I bought a RTB from a local specialty shop I've been using for over 10 years now. She is 7 years old, roughly 8 feet, and may be possibly gravid. Husbandry and temp are perfect, along with appetite and energy. Her skin seems to be a little loose. The other day I noticed a long bone like structure running down her side, one up by the neck, and another by her vent. They are hard and slightly wiggle, and doesn't seem to cause any discomfort when touched. Here are some pictures. Thanks in advance guys! First time poster

    I can't really see this clearly. I guess by now you have taken the boa to a reptile vet. It could be internal parasites of some kind.

    Looks like some really bad parasites or broken bones to me. Get her to a vet immediately! Especially if there's a possibility of her being gravid
