Strange boa

I am new here and I have a strange boa question. I picked up a hypo red tail 2 years ago and she had a couple of weird white scales and in the period Iíve had her she has shed multiple times of course every time she sheds the white scales have spread and now she looks like sheís covered in snow flakes. They feel normal and nothing is wrong with her health wise itís the first thing I checked. Nobody has been able to tell me anything and she doesnít look like the snake I bought anymore

Not a big deal. Sometimes snakes have odd colour changes.

Re: Strange boa

ive seen this happen on boas before its like reverse paradox, normal paradox are like black scales where these are white, can look cool sometimes

as long as your boa is eating/shedding and acting normal then you boa should be fine

Re: Strange boa

Just some odd genetics, no worries. If our boa was a Dominican mountain boa it would be one of only a few that have been known to do that, and would be worth quite a bit of money, lol.

Re: Strange boa

Doesn't look like anything harmful is happening from that picture. Just some calico spots.

Aslong as there are no chemicals or anything being used on or around the enclosure then I wouldn't worry.
