CK:
It would appear from your photos that the juvenile Rubber Boa exhibits some damage to one or more supralabials near the rostral plate and also to the preocular plate. If that is the case, what if any explanation was given by the individual from which you obtained the specimen?

It is not really a big deal as such injuries will heal and not affect the health of the specimen. As Kent mentions, that it has taken meals and in particular, at this time of year is a real positive.

If you feel inclined to do so, could you post a photo of the boa's ventral surface and perhaps a better angle of the area that appears to be damaged? Also, do you have any information as to the locality from where the parent boas originated?
