Candoia carniata Paulsoni

Does anyone own a Pacific boa (Candoia Carniata Paulsoni)? If yes, I want to know please if it’s a shy snake? does it keep hiding? What is the difference in behavior between it and ball python? Does it stop eating?

Re: Candoia carniata Paulsoni

If I was a small snake like that, I'd be hiding too...0.5-0.6m in length.

Since it's arboreal, do you have any tree branches in the enclosure?

If it's like my juvenile WLP or my Dominican RMB, it won't come out except at night--those two snakes are never out during the day...well, except for feeding days, but then only out at dusk.

Scuba, out of curiosity, would that be perches with good cover? Presumably if the snake is hiding it would prefer branches that offer the security of a lot of cover, but maybe I'm mistaken.

[Just asking because I keep thinking of getting an arboreal species.]
