always given water to my rosy boas once a week to every 10 days in brumation. Now, you ae right, I usually give my boas water every month (sometimes even longer) from march thru oct but during the winter, they should be regularly hydrated. I feel in the wild, rosys would do most of there drinking in the winter or spring and probably little to no water in the summer or fall. Just my theory but I really wouldnt want to know the outcome of a boa that didnt get a drop all of brumation. some may do it but I would definately advise against it. Also, i would never leave water in w/ a boa for over 24 hrs, regardless of the time of year. It gets the humidity too high and may cause a respiratory infection. Some people may keep water in 24/7 but the enclosure wouls have to atleast have an open top and well vented sides. Just my $.02 'Rootsrok'
