I am a 5ft. Colombian Red-Tailed boa. I eat thawed dead rats once a week, yummy yummy! I am probably around 5-6 years old. I will live to be around 30 years old, so I have a long life ahead of me!!! I do have a skin condition, but it was mostly corrected because my owners took out my wood chips and put newspaper in instead, feed me more hearty meals, kept my cage warm and humid, and gave me more attention. Now I shed in one piece instead of flakes!!!
