Boa colombian Rainbow Health Information

Though easier to care for than some Rainbow Boas, the Colombian Rainbow Boa can be easily stressed and sensitive to improper environmental conditions, so is not recommended for beginning snake keepers.

Native to South American tropical forest regions, the Colombian Rainbow Boa requires a humid environment. Provide a 60 to 80 percent humidity and an ambient daytime cage temperature about 80 degrees Fahrenheit, with a warmer area about 85 degrees. At night the temperature should be lowered to about 75 degrees Fahrenheit. The Colombian Rainbow Boa should also be provided with hide boxes and branches for climbing.

The Colombian Rainbow Boa becomes sexually mature when it reaches about two and half to four years of age. Breeding requires lots of energy and should only be attempted with healthy snakes, which have a substantial weight. The breeding season occurs between October and April, though much of the breeding will take place in the autumn months. Colombian Rainbow Boas are best encouraged to breed when one female is allowed to interact with many males, and the temperature should be dropped down to about 70 degrees at night and the lower 80's in the day time. Reducing the amount of daylight to the animal and misting it occasionally have also been known to encourage breeding; eight hours of daylight should suffice. Before giving birth, the snake may become restless for a day or so. Colombian Rainbow Boas give birth to live young, usually ten to 30, after a gestation period of 115 to 135 days on average. If possible, live young should be removed immediately from the mother, as in eating her stillborn young, a live Boa may be mistakenly consumed.
