Hi, my first post here, so basically introducing myself and my Fiji boas.

I live in Fiji and have three one-year-old Candoia bibroni bibroni captive born to wild parents. They're about 60cm (2 feet) long now.

I've got questions about how old they have to be before I can accurately determine sex (without probing), and about colour changes, (all my three can be brown with a pinkish belly, but all can change colour, and one prefers to be pale pink, one is usually almost silver and grey and the other normally remains brown..... Does anyone know whether they will continue to do this or whether they will settle into permanent colour patterns as they get older?

I also have photo of some of the colour variations we see in wild adults if anyone's interested.

Also very happy to answer questions if anyone wants to know about how these guys are in the wild.

Thanks,
Helen
