Re: Sluggish boa; need advice!

Thank you so much for the reply. I was worried he had ingested substrate or that my feeding mistake had caused a problem (which it may have). But, as you thought might be the case, he went into shed about a week after I wrote the original post. He also had a large bowel movement right after. I was relieved. Well, we both were. Haha

I expected he would be rather hungry after this series of events, but he refused to eat the day after. Regarding prey size and feeding frequency, once he has swallowed the rat, there is no discernible bulge. Are you suggesting feeding every 3-4 weeks because he is big for his age or just as a general rule? Most of what I have read suggests 7-10 days.
