Red-Tail Boa Housing

Hi everyone, I'm the new owner of a young red tail boa and she is my 3rd snake. Just wanted some opinions on her cage set up, and any suggestions that anyone has
The hot side is between 87 and 95F while the cool is around 75 to 80, using eco-earth substrate and a damp towel on top of a screen top to keep the humidity. Heat sources are the overhead infrared and under tank heater

Re: Red-Tail Boa Housing

I guess this false name „red tail“ was invented in the US. It’s there where it’s mostly being used. The new boa owners just repeat it. There is no snake with the name red tail. The snake name is boa constrictor. What type of boa constrictor do you have? The main ones are boa constrictor imperator and boa constrictor constrictor. Boa constrictors need the same temperature and humidity. Your temperatur is ok. Humidity should remain above 70% during the shedding process

Re: Red-Tail Boa Housing

i think people get confused with the name 'Red Tailed Boa' but to me the BCC or now known as BC is the proper red tail as most actually have bright red tails but not all BCC do, dont let it get above 90 in the warm end . always mist more regular at the first signs of shedding for the best sheds ,cloudy eyes normally
