Also, I should mention that I've been keeping Jamaican Boas, <html><i>Epicrates subflavus</I></html>, for ten years, and have bred them successfully on two occasions.
My adult male feeds only, on the average, about five or six times A YEAR! During the winter and breeding season he goes off feed totally for months, like most male snakes. He is, in spite of himself, beautiful, healthy and reproductively active. On half-a-dozen meals a year...
...And these are slender, relatively "active" <html><i>Boids</i></html>, not heavy-bodied, fairly sedentary ones.

Remember, just because someone has 3000 posts on the forums, or has put out a care-sheet, does NOT necessarily make them an experienced "herper".
