Boa Mexican Rosy Health Information

Because, Rosy Boas are terrestrial, they do not need a tall enclosure. A minimum 20-gallon-long terrarium is a recommended for one or two adults. Some possible substrates include sand, aspen shavings, shredded newspaper. They should be provided with a hiding spot.The ambient temperature within the enclosure should be about 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day,and they should have a basking spot between 85 and 90 degrees. At night the cage temperature should be about 70-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep enclosure humidity low.

In captivity, Mexican Rosy Boas are primarily fed on small rodents. Juveniles should be fed about once a week, and adults can be fed every 7 to 10 days.

To help insure successful breeding, Mexican Rosy Boas must first undergo a period of brumation. Prior to brumation, they should be fed more often than usual as they should not be fed while brumating or 2 weeks prior to being cooled. The temperature within the enclosure should be dropped to the low to mid 50 degrees Fahrenheit for a period of between six and ten weeks. In February, the enclosure should be gradually returned to its normal temperature. Feeding should be resumed about seven days later. The Mexican Rosy Boa will usually breed between three and eight weeks after brumation has ended. Male Rosy Boas will sometimes stop feeding during breeding. The female Mexican Rosy Boa will give birth to live young between 115 and 140 days after mating.
