Below is a video of my brand new Brazilian Rainbow Boa male cb12. Cost me 140 for the snake, he is adorable in every way. He was only about a month old when I bought him. I've had him now about 2 weeks just coming up. he has eaten all meals so far on time etc and has a really good temperament as did my female. People say they're nippy when they're young but I am yet to experience that *touch wood*. Yeh, I Hope you all like my video, comments welcome from all, happy to hear of any alterations as well. :)

:::::::::::FIRSTLY, SORRY FOR THE MASSIVE MESSAGE::::::::::::: Thank you for your compliments :). Sharing my photos/videos/info is my pleasure. My female is getting along very well. In regards to a new habitat for her, my local reptile expert has informed me to stay put for a short while as he has been told by EXO TERRA that they are making a 4ft vivarium exactly the same as the one I've got which is 3ft. Which would be ideal for the pair. Also I have now found a very good way to control the humidity within my current vivarium, and I am 100% confident that it will work for the more larger vivarium too. Well firstly I was gonna name it Leo, then I was gonna name it Rio, but it's after rio ferdinand and i really do NOT like him so that was out the window. Then I thought of Scarface, which is my fave film. But he doesn't look much like a drug dealer haha so I just named him Leo in the end. The original name was best anyways as you said it is a good name :). Also I'd like to add that my female is currently going through shedding period, Her color has gone very fog alike as it normally would starting the shedding process. she is approximately 5 n half foot now, she is coming on a treat. I cannot imagine this being a major problem, but I fed my female not long ago a mouse that I thawed out as per usual with cold water then hot/warm water, and it appeared to still have a bit of water inside the mouse. Once the snake got halfway through the mouse, bubbles of water started coming out of the side of the snakes mouth but I'm guessing and hoping that this is not a problem? it is the first time that it has happened and did worry me a little bit as it's never happened. I cannot see it being a problem but I am no expert, so what can you tell me on that subject? Also, I now think my male BRB Leo is going through shed mode he looks very dull colored, he has had two pinky mice since I've had him. Thanks.

Be careful of co-housing snakes. If one gets sick, they both might.

I have a male named Scarface! He actually did have a scar on his head when he arrived, too...long since healed.

Bubbles *could* be bad. After she's digested for a few days, look at her mouth and throat to make sure all is normal color with no mucus. If she's clear, you're fine. If she does have mucus, it could be a respiratory infection, in which case she would need to see a vet. This is highly unlikely, mind, but it's always best to check and thus catch poential problems while still early and treatable.

Pinkie mice are way too small a meal for even a baby rainbow, unless you want to feed four or five at a time. Try a single rat pink or mouse hopper.

Good luck!
