Lol, I guess I'm a bit impatient and I'd like to speed up his growth. Already since I've picked him up at the end of Nov. I can see a sizable change in his girth. Any recommendations are appreciated.
Boas have a very slow metabolism. For a neonate, appropriately sized meals every 7-10 days would be best. You've unfortunately not picked the best species if you're impatient to see it grow, but I am sure you'll be able to tough it out.
