I wouldn’t expect it to be any different than a normal shed cycle really..they go dark and get opaque, clear up, and then shed. Female boas that give birth around here don’t seem to act too different in the way they shed after giving birth.

Well typically, boas will ovulate and if the female takes during the ovulation and is fertilized, a little while after they ovulate they will shed, and this then becomes known with gravid boas, as the post ovulation shed, and with a common colombian bci, they generally go 105 days post ovulation shed before they drop any babies, give or take a few days, a gravid animal shouldn’t be moved and messed around with too much, and they should be fed smaller meals than normal, especially as the babies develop more, although females will go off of food when they are ready, or getting close..not all do though, and another important thing, when a boa is pregnant it definately needs to be heated properly, a lot of the time you will see boas that are gravid laying on their sides, or inverted, and even all coiled up on the warm end of the enclosure in what they call the heat conservation position, it’s important that the babies are heated good enough while they are developing inside the mother..you can check out Jeff Ronne’s (theboaphile) site and I believe he still has an article up about breeding boas, and he is really one of the best boa people out there.

 After giving birth

Marky, my name is Brandon. I’m 25 and live in Memphis,TN. I’ve posted this news on the RTB forum earlier. Natasha, my 6 week old RTB stopped eating after she shed. I tried everything for about 2 weeks before I found this site and began getting advise. I called my vet yesterday to get a second opinion. Yesterday, as the day went on, I noticed that Natasha was extra lethargic and I grew concerned. I took her to the vet and her stool sample came back teeming with parasites! Natasha came from a pet store, which has to be where the parasites came from because i have done nothing but pamper her since I got her. She has been my life for the last 6 weeks. The doc gave her a shot and gave me several liquid meds to feed her orally. Long story short....she died just a few hours after the trip to the vet...last night @ 9:45. My heart is broken. I spent several hundred dollars on vet bills and I still owe more. I won’t be able to function again without some beautiful boa in her tank to take her place. The point of me writing this to you is that I see you have a few new additions to your boa family and would like to talk you into selling one, if possible. I run my own business from home, so I have all the time in the world to spoil it. I have a great 50 gallon tank with all the accessories....I am only minus a snake. Please let me know what i can do to convince you to help me out.
