gmpyro:
Your information is to fragmented and incomplete to offer you much of any advice. I have only been involved with the Rubber Boa from a research angle so don't know much of anything about the pet trade and what has been circulating about the care of the species. This is in spite of the fact that one of my sons has been in the pet trade for a number of years and has a web site, www.rubberboas.com you might visit.

If you would wish, you can contact me at charinabottae@earthlink.net If you can provide more detail, perhaps I can give you some advice. I have been breeding the species since 1969 but am far from knowing all there is to know about maintaining and breeding Rubber Boas . I only know what has worked for me but others have had good success with the species using a different set of conditions.

The information on your current female's weight make absolutely no sense. Since your male is an adult, at 23 grams he has to be extremely thin. I suggest soaking him in shallow water for about 10 minutes every week to insure he remain hydrated and keep him as cool as possible.
