Hi. Posting a few pics of Fiji boas in the wild. I live over here, and we find them when people are clearing forest. The local guys tend to kill them automatically, but in a few cases people have been able to intervene and rescue them. From a few of these rescues we've had captive born neonates, and now we are trying to work out how to start a captive breeding programme, as there is starting to be a local demand for pets.
We feed local geckos to the small ones, rats, day old chicks and mynah birds to the adults, and I have supplemented geckos with chicken heart for the medium size.
We're still learning. Hints and tips welcome.
Here are some pics...
