A little Bit of Candoia love!

A little bit of Candoia love! This adult female Solomon Island Ground Boa (Candia paulsoni) produced a huge ltter for us this year of 43 neonates.

So far, nearly half of the litter has beeen successfully switched to frozen thawed pink mice. Likely, the remainder will need a month or two more of scenting before they have been switched to rodents. 🙂 <3

We are getting close to the point in the season where we start pairing our boas for breeding. Such as this female Solomon Island Ground Boa (Candoia paulsoni). With luck, we’ll have some beautiful paulsoni neo’s to fuss over next year. 😁🐍
