Trust me, I stuffed the little buggers. I figured if they were always full, they wouldn't chow down on my fingers. Lol, nope. The only time the finger eating attempts stopped was when I upgraded to fuzzies as they grew. My theory, pink fingers and fuzzies look a lot alike if your a snake.
As for housing them together from birth, this too I have tried, back when I was pressed for space. I had heard some people had success with this. They were fine up until their first sheds. after, they would bite each other, and crush each other against things anytime one made contact with the other. I would feed them a ton of food, I gave them a bigger terrarium, and still it got worse. Eventually they wouldn't eat, and so I separated them. It was stressful on all of us lol, but after wards they did thrive. to this day, if I handle them with out washing my hands in between snakes, they either try to bite me, or freak out.
I keep some of my boas together, I always strait from birth, and this usually works for them too. But again, all boas are different, and sometimes it didn't work with them either. Like we all know, nature can't be predicted or controlled, and the out come, will always vary based on the individual. And new keepers need to remember that.
So my question to you guys, does this method work for every one of your snakes? And do you believe everyone can do it, if so how? And have you ever had a negative experience doing this, or something that could be avoided by someone else?
