 Ramses-Pearl Baby Profiles (2015-B, #17-#19)

Baby #17 (Hypo Female)

This little lass has a three short and one long dorsal chains on her back. She also has a faint black center line tracing down the center of her spine. Her sides are mostly crescents, with two bullseyes, four pearls, and one “reverse” bullseye on her right; and two fragments on her left. For a usually tame little girl, she was feisty during grading night. Apparently being gender-checked is not all that dating guides suggest.

Stunning as always! Can’t wait to see how the 2016 babies will come out :).

I have a question I’ve been thinking about for a long time now. How are rainbow boas different from some other snakes when it comes to laying on moist substrate/towels? For example ball pythons can get blisters from laying on wet/moist substrate for too long but BRBs or even blood pythons are okay with it, I’m not sure if its because they require way more humidity or something.

Rainbows are ridiculously tolerant of moisture. What does bug them, however, is dirty substrate. That can lead even a rainbow to develop scale rot. Thankfully, if caught quickly, they seem to recover fast with a soak or two in diluted betadine.
