84 degrees towards the side of the cage where her log is: it might be cooler inside the actual log, I don't know. She stays in there pretty often. (We have one of those stick-on thermometers that tells us the temperature. Hmmm...I'm wondering if that's the best way to measure cage temp...probably not. But it's all we have right now.)

Male Rosys have spurs though, right? Like on the image on this page?

I've examined my Rosy Boa (whose name is Rosie btw) very closely and I don't see any spurs. If they are there, they're too small to be seen with the naked eye.

Is there a way you can sex them by tail length, too? I don't have a probe, since I don't want to put Rosie through unnecessary stress just to find out the gender.

I'm relieved to hear that "shutting down" is normal and that they won't let themselves get too thin. She's not thin right now, but she's less chubby than she usually is. (And I'm calling her a she since she doesn't have the spurs, and the breeder who raised her said she was female.)
