Rescue Me ID: 17-09-07-00008Tarahumara Dwarf Boa (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult


    Mambo is a Tarahumara Dwarf Boa Constrictor who I bought as a baby six years ago from an incredible breeder in Oregon. He has been the most amazing snake (I'd even bring him in for show and tell at my son's school) to handle up until a few months ago. He was always incredibly healthy and stress-free. He has a Boafile cage which has kept him very happy. Recently he lost a ton of weight very suddenly, and has become more aggressive than I have ever seen him. Hissing and striking at his cage anytime we walk by. This is so abnormal for him. I thought it could be a food issue, although he's been given the same amount as I've always given him ... (Read More)(btw, he gets frozen, thawed mice). His strike is of course harmless as he's not venomous, nor is he very large, but it makes me uncomfortable to handle him or even clean out his cage and water him. I can't keep him anymore, as I don't have it in me to rehabilitate him. He doesn't have mites, and there's nothing else I think it is except that maybe the smaller mice weren't enough. His appetite is very good and i've increased his feeding to twice a month up from once. I carried this guy around in my robe pocket since he was a baby. He has good in him. And i'd love to see him go to someone with some patience and no fear of snakes. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Delaware
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Delaware if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.
