Boa Peruvian Red Tail Health Information

Peruvian Red Tailed Boas are tropical reptiles. You should keep their cage at 80 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, with a basking spot about 90 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit. At night the cage should be about 10 degrees cooler. Humidity should be maintained at about 50 to 80 percent. Mature Peruvian Red Tailed Boa Constrictors should be housed in a relatively large enclosure. Since they spend time both in trees and on the ground in the wild, provide them with a sturdy climbing branch as well as ground space. Peruvian Red Tails love to soak and should have a bowl large enough for them to coil up in. Unfortunately, Red Tail water bowls usually require frequent cleaning because the snakes tend to defecate while soaking.

Captive Peruvian Red Tail Boas should be fed appropriately sized rodents. Small to medium sized boas will eat mice and rats, which are relatively cheap and easy to obtain. Be advised, however, that Red Tailed Boas grow very quickly when properly maintained, and will need to be fed larger mammals such as guinea pigs and rabbits, which can be more costly and difficult to procure in certain areas or at certain times of the year. It is a good idea to feed pre-killed rodents, as they cannot bite back. Immature boas should be fed about once every seven to ten days. As adults, they do not need to eat quite as frequently.
