Boa health

Hey everyone. My juvenile boa is loosing some weight, enough to see her spine when she moves across my hands and fingers. I can feel it pretty well too. She eats like a champ though, and her husbandry is correct. Any ideas?

Re: Boa health

She weighs 290 grams, feeding her once every seven days, and a small rat. When she eats it leaves a small bulge. But I know she’s lost weight because her skin has become loose and her spine shows when I hold her. I can’t tell if she’s sick or not. There’s no mites, and her husbandry is right. ��
