Hog Island ON THE WAY !!!!

I had decided my next snake would be a ball morph of some kind , until i saw the pics on here of a couple hog island boas , i guess you could say i fell in love .. So after some awesome advice from Tekpc007 i have my new 2010 Hog Island female scheduled to arrive wed ... Her cage is ready and waiting .. I will post some pics ASAP i promise ..

Re: Hog Island ON THE WAY !!!!

Cool, congrats! I was also deciding between a Hog and a Royal Python morph in the beginning. I am so happy with my Hog, he's an awesome snake and just keeps getting more and more beautiful as he grows. Can't wait to see the pictures!

it was a craigslist score from a guy down the street so i got it the next day , but the boamaster guy says he ships them in about 5 days normally.

did the Gal who is shipping them tell you she is feeding them mice? The male she is sending is on mice so ill will keep him on mice for a while then try to get him on rats as my female is eating small rats now.

Re: Hog Island ON THE WAY !!!!

Congratulations once you get her settled and ensure she is eating well you can also try the occasional meal of chicks as a 'treat'

Re: Hog Island ON THE WAY !!!!

Ok i will weigh her and check her length , she is a little smaller than i expected but thats ok cause i wanted a baby so she will be just fine . Maybe she will start pounding rats instead of mice and put on some weight , not to much of course .. I really didnt understand why they fed her mice to begin with .. But hopefully she will swap with no problems ...

Re: Hog Island ON THE WAY !!!!

i hope so , mine was eating small rats for a full year , thats how she got so big and likley the guy who had her before overfed her . If she is lean and healthy then all good! The guy told me he had a hard time switching her to rats , and fed her mice for a while at first.

Re: Hog Island ON THE WAY !!!!

Well she weighs in at 280 grams and is 35'' long .. I am amazed at how docile she is , she just wraps around my hand and lays her head down on my arm and watches tv ..lol
