Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

I get them occasionally on new animals, Aizen came in with mites too. And Loki did too a long time ago.. Mites are the worst thing about snake keeping!

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

Abaddon left me a nice birthday gift.. She regurged the rat fed to her the 17th (It's now the 24th).. It was partially digested, but I could still see what it was. Smelled absolutely putrid! My earlier feeling of her not digesting properly was true, giving her some time to recover and will try something easier to digest next time. Perhaps a rat pup or quail chick. Not sure what caused it her prey was small, redtails stomachs are pretty sensitive though.. She has 4 temperatures to choose from, as I provided her with a slightly warmer option.. She choose the regular hotspot. Basically the second warmest hide. Didn't handle or touch her, only checked once. She didn't seem bothered, was out in the open and I saw her bulge hadn't changed and slid a regulated heat mat under her tub for more options. Ugh just got home from a nice birthday party, cleaning this almost makes me rethink my stomach contents whereabouts myself.. :|

Thanks Dave!

I agree it's a pity, wish she would give me a stool sample to look at..

Goodness knows what's going on inside him with the abuse he took before he came to you

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

Yea, I just hope I can get her back to health again. Giving her 99% privacy now. Open the tub once every day for water, that's it!

Man, sorry about the dilemma with Abbadon! Hope she can fight it off. On a lighter note, Happy Birthday and enjoy. Best Wishes.

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

Hope you can get her back to normal. Keep positive thought that maybe it was just a little too big of a meal this go around as she obviously wasn't cared for properly prior to you. Maybe your thoughts on a smaller food item will stay down. Best of luck and Happy Bday!

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

Thanks both, she was looking very dark this morning when I changed her water. She was again dull and quite calm (didn't come up to see what I was doing), hope it's just an upcoming shed. Bought a few rat pups, should be easier on her stomach! Everyone else is doing great

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

Sorry about the "gift"

They are sooo pretty. So are you going to be shipping babies international?

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

I hope so too Dave. Not much has changed, I peeked through the front of the tub when I checked on the others, doesn't seem like she moved at all. No interest in the warmer area either, she stays in the cold side.

Thanks Trailblazer, think shipping international would be quite expensive though!

Re: Tsubakis Boas, an update topic.

Sounds like she's going into shed especially with her hardly moving I'd take peek and see if dulling down just to put my mind at ease

I took a peek this morning, she was laying a bit odd.. I touched the paper she was on and she struck at me, was good enough for me so I let her be.
