I have never had a snake regurgitate on me in the 1 year i have kept them. Well i was wanting to know what it looked like because i hear col. red tails regurgitate when there young *with in one year* and i just got a new col. red tail and was wanting to know what it looked like just in case she did.
0.1.0 Dumeril Boa (Dummy) 0.1.0 Col. Red tail (Hollow) 100%het for Albino Boa 1.1.0 (Ion & Etnie)
That is not a normal reaction for a redtail to regurge. Take your boas to a vet and see if it is an infection or maybe too large of a meal. Regurging happens with emerald tree boas if things are not right.
Well a vet trip will get you loads of information about this situation and the overall health of you animals, well worth the expense and time down the road.
by Colombian I assume you mean Bci, not known for regurging. Young Bcc will often regurge when presented with a prey item that a Bci the same size eat with no problems. I do advocate large feedings for many animals and believe it promotes an excellent growth curve over the first 2-3 years. That always can be modified, 2 of the 3 species of Lampro I keep still eat hopper-juvi mice though they are both nearly 3 years old. A single regurge isn't necessarily a problem but a trip to the vet to be sure is called for. Most breeders will happily tell you prey size they use at various stages for any particular species.
I remember the one time we had our boa regurge (2 days is not enough time), it was NASTY. If you have to ask your self if it's regurge then it's not regurge. Not every regurge will require a vet visit (ie regurge due to excessive handling too soon after feeding) but it's a good thing to keep an eye out for.
