Boa Russian Sand Health Information

Because of their small size, many Russian Sand Boas may be housed in ten gallon terrariums, although very large specimens may need more space. Usually, Russian Sand Boas can do well in a sand or aspen bedding substrate of about two inches in depth. A piece or bark or smooth rock should be present, as this can aid in shedding. The daytime temperature sould be 80 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basing spot about 95 degrees. At night the temperature should be lowered to about 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Generally, Russian Sand Boas reach sexual maturity between three and four years of age. To breed them, you should usually hibernate Russian Sand Boas from November to January at a temperature of about 50 degrees Fahrenheit (ten degrees Celsius). After they have been warmed up again, many males will not eat readily until after the breeding process is over. Gravid females will tend to seek out especially warm areas, and it is recommended that they be provided with a basking spot of about 95 degrees Fahrenheit (34 degrees Celsius). The neonates are very small and will require newborn pinky mice for many months. Some are finicky eaters and require small lizards. Baby Russian Sand Boas that are reluctant to feed can sometimes be started on lizard scented pinkie mice.
