Bumps on ETB

Hey guys,
I've had my ETB for about 6 months now and it really seems to be thriving. It eats every 2-3 weeks and defecates every 1-2 weeks. I am noticing though that it it starting to get weird bumps on its side down towards the tail. They are on the striation between the twin dorsal muscles and the side muscles. Let me see if I can put some pictures up. It doesn't look like my snake is dehydrated, there doesn't seem to be any grooving or concavity in the scales, and it seems to be a good eater. Any ideas what I have going on here?[IMG][/IMG]

Thumbs up

Rob, is this boa WC or CB? if WC it could possibly be nematode worms, not a big deal as most imported ETB Boas come in with these. see your herp vet and they will prescribe droncit injections to cure it and good luck.

Yeah, i'd listen to what Ed stated. He KNOWS what he's talking about.

Yea, it is wild caught but it was imported long ago; I guess I figured that it would mean it was free from all those parasites. I'll take a trip to the vet. Thanks guys.

What was the outcome on this ETB? Nematodes or something else?
