In Reply to: A question on handleing posted by craig0104 on October 02, 2002 at 23:48:36:
I have had my for about a year and if you try and hold him he will strike over and over, I admit I don't handle him much though, shortly after I got him he went into shed and needed some help getting it all off so I dawned my trusty leather gloves and went for it and before I knew it I had a pissed off boa latched to my hand and he wouldn't let go for nothin' and thats when I decided he would make a nice display animal!! I can now clean his waterbowl and crap from the cage without him striking at me as long as I don't touch him. As for the substrate I use mulch and have never had a problem with it, He always feeds from his favorite perch at the top of the cage. Just threw the pic in for fun. Take care and good luck.
: i am picking up a garden phase tree boa, and i was wondering if any handles theirs. i have had a few good bites by tree boas, but i have never owned one. i am well aware of their bite, but i really would like to handle mine when it gets acclamated. i have gotten very angry african rock pythons,and retics to tame down over time, but i am wondering if aboreals stress easier. i have been reading up on their anatomy and physiology (aboreals) for a few months now, and i am confident in my descision to get one. i don't mind not handling one, but, i think it would be fun to have one that is handlable.
: i am also confused about substrate. i am planning un using newspaper (figureing that since they atre aboreal they do on need much sub. s.) but i know news paper will not hold appropiate humidity. i'm thinking about cypress mulch, but i am worried about possiable intestineal impactions.
