01/02/10 NEW YEAR'S BABIES!!
We are starting of the new year of 2010 with a bang-a beautiful litter of VPI Caramel Albino Boa babies!
The mom is a 100% het born in 1997, so she is approximately 12 1/2 years old. The dad is our 6 year old unrelated yellow male.
There have been reports that female boas don't reproduce well after 7 years of age. From our experience I don't see that, and I am planning on these older females reproducing like our female pythons, well in to their 20's. We do not breed these animals every year, we let them rest alternate years and this may be the reason they continue to thrive and reproduce.
This litter was absolutely perfect!
Mom is fed a rat after delivering this perfect litter. Her distraction let's me get a better look at the babies!
