Hello! A new newbie here.

Post by T-Bone on Sun Jul 07, 2013 5:10 pm

Hello, I was looking for information on Rosy Boas and I come upon this forum. Currently I own no rosy boa but I will within a couple of months. I am just trying to get as much information as I can before I purchase.

Hello and welcome!

First make sure you buy all the supplies first before buying the snake. Rosies require low (30%) humidity so you will need an enclosure with good ventilation. Keep a small water dish on the cool side to prevent too much evaporation.

20 gallon tank or 35-41 litre tub will be sufficient for a rosy.

Under tank heaters are the best type of heating, I personally use Fluker's brand. DO NOT use a heat source without a thermostat. A lot of pet stores don't sell them, I got mine from ebay.

Good bedding would be aspen or paper towel. Not sand. Mine enjoys burrowing in aspen.

Be sure you have two hides, one on the cool side and one on the warm side. I keep my warm side at 85F and cool side at 70-75. Some rosies like 90 on the warm side but mine did not like it so I lowered it.

Thanks for the info! The humidity part is the thing that worries me a little. When you say well ventilated, with an 20 gallon tank that would be with an all screen top right? What else would help bring down humidity in the tank?

This is the enclosure I used to have my rosy in. 20 gal on its side to provide the most floorspace, and metal grate lid that has a strong latch to prevent escape.
(he has been moved to a tub because they are more space-saving in my little apartment. If you use a tub you must drill a LOT of holes in it for ventilation.)
