Hey guys and gals thought I would introduce myself. My name is Stephen and I'm completely new to keeping snakes.

I just picked up my baby brazilian this afternoon and she seems to be in good health and just a little grumpy due to the transportation and new surroundings I would imagine.

1 question I do have is that she is due a feed tomorrow and I'm unsure if I should offer her it or give her a couple of days to settle in first?

Welcome to the forum, Stephen! And to the (addictive) world of rainbow boas!

New snakes typically take a few days to a week to settle in. During this period, it is best to leave them alone. That includes feedings. Better safe than sorry.

Let me know if I can help further!
