Actually i do have ONE question. Does it eat rodents? And if it does how did you get it to? I normally freeze a frog or toad in water, then defrost it and let the mice soak in the water for 24hrs. then dry them off and feed. Tell em if you have any other suggestions. Those are the only suggestions for now, Thanks.

Hey dude. Just a pointer - try saving your pics as jpegs instead of bmps. More people might look at them if it is not a hassle with a huge file size.

How? just when i save it as save as, i change it at the bottom right?

Does he breed good for you?

10-04-2004, 07:28 AM
Haven't tried because i haven't been able to get a female....plus he is a problem feeder....hes only ate on his own once or twice, i have to force feed him, ive had him for about a year...

10-08-2004, 07:42 AM
are you talking about the male or female?

10-08-2004, 12:12 PM
Either or? Have you had any successful breedings?

10-08-2004, 12:42 PM
ya i had my male accidentally breed with my red tail boa...lol they share a tank, they will be separated soon though...she's getting a little big for him...lol. The babies looked kind of like kenyan sand bos, they died after about a week though...:( But no successful breedings yet......

Are you trying to joke here? A redtail boa, breeding with a hognose snake?
I dont believe, I'd need to see it to believe it, and I still wouldn't. And besides, why would you keep a hognose snake with a redtail in the first place?
Dude, that one is a little to out there for me to believe.

10-09-2004, 03:40 PM
Believe what you want...i know its true.

10-09-2004, 08:16 PM
Would you care to share pictures if it's true?
Surely you'd have taken pictures, with such a rare breeding. Nothing remotely similar to this has taken place, and many people would argue it's impossible. They are very different. Egg layer, and live birth. Boid, and colubrid.
I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be empty headed enough to leave this undocumented...

Consider the source, he's 15 yrs old. Just check out a few of his other posts and you'll understand.

Ever been abducted by aliens Mikey? I'm sure you could start a whale of a thread with that. :alien:

yes i was abducted when i was 10.....

Ok Jeff, makes a lot of sense now. Teen making outlandish claims, I wonder how much business he'll get when everyone knows he keeps species like that together, then claims they breed.
Besides, how big was the female redtail boa, if the male is 17", and the female is just now getting to big for him, she couldn't have been more than 36" at the time of you claim, meaning she was half the breeding size a female is, so she wouldn't have even been capable of producing Redtail babies, let alone your sad attempt of a lie mutt snake.

Kid, I don't know why you're such a lying little attention whore, nor do I care. I am, however, growing extremely tired of it. As such, I think it's about time that we seriously reconsider your continued participation here.

Let's take a look at just a few facts that immediately come to mind.

1) The hemipenes of Heterodon sp. will not remain in the homologues of Boa constrictor ssp .

2) These two genera have a disparate number of chromosomes, which makes reproduction impossible.

3) These two species are taxonomically so far removed from one another that they can't hybridize. Nevermind the fact that they're not in the same family, they aren't even in the same superfamily.

4) The timing of gametogenesis in these species precludes any breeding activity.

Good lay down Ken.
You explained better than I could've. He would have just kept arguing with me.
I think this will silence him.
