After weeks of pacing and days of worry, this past month has been the countdown to the projected delivery date of my female jungle boa. This big girl is bred to my ghost boa male. I was pacing because this is an important clutch. I've invested five years of effort to see this clutch born. But I've been pacing because my female had seemingly gotten too big and sometimes boas in this condition deliver dead babies or, worse, they die before delivery.
