Help Gravid boa????

Hi I am new here and need some help asap pls.

I bought an adult pair of el salvador boas at the end of september . Up until we got them they were kept in the same viv.( I have seperated them). The thing is the female was really light in colour when we got her , now she is really dark even though she did shed about 1 week ago. She is always on the heat in her hide also so is becoming quite `moody` lol. Any help appricated. I am new to boas so probably just worrying over nothing .Thanks in advance x

Re: Gravid boa????

It's still very early in the breeding season for her to show signs of gestating babies. A number of the Central American boas go through a dramatic color change throughout the day.

Best to keep her heat steady and see if she starts to swell in the next few months. Pics would be nice! I don't think anyone on here has El Salvador's. Are they het blood?

They should be kept separate unless you are trying to breed them anyway. Central American boas are much smaller and develop sexually at a later age than most South American boas.
