i know people that do house them together. but not sure about male and female. that can stress her out with over breeding. or breeding when they still young.

The shed cycle can take up to fourteen days to complete following the eyes clearing from blue.

No boa should be co-housed unless for breeding purposes only.

People do it, but that does not make it right. It causes unneeded stress and can cause problems when trying to figure out who is defectating, who is drinking etc. etc.

If you cannot afford or have the means to house each in their own proper enclosure, you should not have more than one boa.

That shed deal is just a boa thing. My sands do it a lot. They look dull, ten normal, then there’s a shed looking up at me. I personally don’t house any snakes together. Disease and mites spread like wildfire this way.
