Kind of a crappy question...about pooping lol
 
Hi everyone. So I got my boa March 28th. Since then she has faithfully eaten each week. A total of 3 times (fuzzy rats). Since I for her though she has not passed any waste. I don't see/smell one single urate in her cage. She was a bit on the small side when I got her so I am wondering if she is just using up most of the food. Hor colaca doesn't seem bulgy or clogged.

My question is should I be worried? Today is feeding day. Should I continue feeding as usual or wait for her to poop?

Appreciate any insight.

ETA: Temps are 88-90 on the hot side and 78-80 on the cool side. Viv heated with a RHP on a thermostat. Humidity hovers around 40.

Is there a big enough water bowl to soak in if they wanted to?

Weight of snake?

Her water bowl is more than large enough to soak in. I am unsure of the weight but she was born January 2020 and as April 1st she was 24 inches. I can get a weight next time i take her out.

Just went to grab her to get a weight and she is in blue! I will skip feeding tonight and hope for a poop after she sheds. Thanks!

Boas don't usually defecate very often, unlike colubrids. Once or twice a month is quite normal.
