  1. Default Keeping BCI Together

    0 Not allowed!
    I am well aware that you normally should not keep several BCI (Boa constrictor imperator) together in the same enclousure however i want to ask if this change with the size of the enclousure. Would it as an example be possible to house several together (and allow them to breed) in a 15x15 x 8 ft enclousure. How about 20x20x8ft?????
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    It's a possibility. But I'd be prepared to separate if need be. And of course I'd feed separately. Boas kept together year round are less likely to breed as well. Plus your male will harass the female(s) and stress them out with the constant breeding attempts. It could be done, but very carefully with a lot of precautions.

    Would a high female to male ratio help than??

    It will definitely help. Just be prepared for lots of baby BCI and to possibly separate the adults at some point.

    What would you recommend as a good ratio. 1:10 ??

    A lot of babies would not be a problem since they are native to the area (and endagered)

    I think a pair of BCI's in the enclosure described would work fine as long as there are lots of hiding and basking areas provided. Don't force them to share these areas. And prepared for babies. Another thought would be multiple females in the enclosure?

    Multiple females would be preferable for me. What I want to do is to keep BCIs with interesting traits together and allow them to spawn. Interesting babies would be kept and ordinary ones released into the wild.
