Re: Adopted Suriname boa very small?

Congrats on your new addition! Do you have any photos you can post? 3-4 feet doesn't really seem that small for a 2 year old. Boas do grow slower that pythons, in general. Personally, I'd switch him over from mice to rats when you can, continue what you're doing, then scale back the feeding once he is at an appropriate wait.

Snakes are very resilient and can go months and months without food with no ill effects - even out of the egg. I wouldn't worry that your snake is stunted. He'll catch up and grow to normal size in no time
