Cleft Pallet in a Hog Island Boa

So just recently we took our Hog Island Boa to the vet for a RI. We found out he has a slight cleft pallet. Has anyone else ever seen this in other boas? His isn't bad and it isn't too noticable. I had initially thought he just has a deformed nostril.

Yes. Sometimes there is a genetic component and it's my opinion that the individual should not be used to breed.

Re: Cleft Pallet in a Hog Island Boa

Agree with Andy. Inbreeding can be a problem with Hogs since the gene pool is so small, especially with pure Hogs, since all importation has been banned for a long time. Resulting in small or large deformities.
