Hi. I really need some help. We have two Rubber Boas that are wild caught. We live in N. Idaho. We have had them for about 2 months and they are both feeding on pinkie mice. I just noticed today that one of them has some strange blothes on its skin. It is kinda darker and the scales seem ruff there. I should note that when we first caught them, I had them in a cage that had the soil from where I found them. I had them in there for about 5 days until I got Eco Earth and bark. I cleaned the cage very well after I took the yucky soil out. The snake I am wondering about just shed about 5 days ago and it was a normal, healthy shed. I know that it isn't the ideal thing to keep a wild caught snake but we LOVE rubber boas and they are not easily found for sale and they are abundant where we live. Any help would be appreciated. I have photos but can't figure out how to upload them on here. Thanks so much!
