Rubber boas will gorge themselves on thawed baby mice placed in a pile like a nest. This rubber boa was still swallowing thawed fuzzy #2 when I picked her up and snapped the bad pic (old pic). And she ate another right after despite me bothering her. True she fasted much of the year, but when she was "on" she was "ON!." I think this is very typical of rubber boas.

I felt bad trying to keep them cool over summer. Just too warm. I gave her away to a friend who had a better setup for a snake like this.
