Re: Boa and rat

Is there a particular reason you need to know exactly how long it takes? I've never fed my boas live, but when my bp ate live, it took him upwards of 10+ minutes to constrict and begin eating.

If it's to feed live, I'd suggest feeding fresh killed or frozen-thawed. Much safer for the snake, and less stressful for the prey.
