I was not aware of this situation. Thank for your input. I hope that this is the solution to the problem. I will lower the temps and if you think of anything else that may help, please let me know. I appreciate the input.
Should I treat his mouth with a vinegar or H2O2 solution to try and remove or nullify the acids that may have accumulated?
:I'm not sure what Gus has said but I've never kept any Hoggs at that temp. range. I keep them from 82-92 degrees F max. If the temperature range is to high the prey can putrify inside the boas body through excessive bacterial growth leading to regurge. The regurge can cause excess acid in the mucous membranes especially in the throat and mouth area. IMHO I think your animal needs an area to cool down a little and can't do it under your current conditions. Regurge in a boa is never normal and is the beginning of the end if you don't correct it early.
