    Default rosy boas

    I am currently looking to buy rosy boas, I have a 40 gallon tall with swing doors in the front of the cage and have looked alot about them on google, and if there is anything else I should need to know please tell.

    A 20 gallon tank is enough room for a rosy boa. But they should be fine in a 40 gal. Always make sure that the lid of the tank locks and is always locked. As last year I had a baby corn snake escape as someone forgot to lock the lid and we never found him.

    I volunteer at the Desert Museum and I handle the rosy boas often. They're beautiful snakes, but they are very mellow and almost lethargic. They're extremely easy to handle and are slow moving.

    Do they bite often? I used to own ball pythons but they never did bite..... But then again I only held the once or twice.... I only like watching snakes more than holding, its more lizards and geckos I like holding.

    No, they shouldn't bite any more often than a ball python or corn snake.

    Not in my experience, it varies a lot by individuals thought. They will let you know when they do not want to be bothered. Pretty cool N. & C. American species. A few species, if I remember correctly, are actually seen out and about during light snow fall in the wild.

    Yeah, it would be some really cool field herping photography if I am correct. I would not try it with a CB animal though, even if he is the locality or species in question. I could safely drop my chondros to 40F tonight and everyone be ok when I elevate temps the next morning; however, I am not trying it. lol.
