Beetlejuice the Boa

🐍✨ Meet Beetlejuice the Boa - Seeking a Knowledgeable Forever Home! ✨🐍

Hello everyone! I am Beetlejuice, a striking 4-5 foot long boa constrictor. I came to J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue on 6/15/24 at the Exotic Pet Surrender Event in Chilton, WI, because I was found abandoned in an apartment building and thought to be overly aggressive. Despite my reputation, I have no problem eating pre-killed large rats and just need a patient and experienced handler to understand my needs.

Adoption Details: In lieu of a set adoption fee, J&R Aquatic Animal Rescue is asking for a donation to be made in my name in order to keep the rescue afloat. Your support ensures that animals like me receive the care and love we need.

About Me: I’m a resilient and striking boa constrictor with a lot of personality. Due to my past, I need a handler who is experienced with snakes and understands the care and handling I require.

Care Tips for Boa Constrictors:

🏠 Housing: Provide me with a large, secure enclosure. A minimum of a 6x2x2 foot tank is recommended for a full-grown boa. The enclosure should have a secure lid and adequate ventilation.

🌡️ Temperature: Maintain a temperature gradient within my enclosure. The basking spot should be around 88-92°F, with a cooler side ranging from 78-82°F. Nighttime temperatures can drop slightly but should not fall below 75°F.

🌿 Humidity: I thrive in a humidity level of 50-60%. Provide a large water dish for humidity and soaking, and mist my enclosure regularly to maintain proper humidity levels.

🏞️ Habitat: Furnish my enclosure with hiding spots, branches for climbing, and a substrate that holds humidity well, such as cypress mulch or coconut fiber.

🍽️ Diet: I was being fed live rats but have no problem eating pre-killed large rats. It’s safer for me to eat pre-killed prey to avoid injury.

🧼 Cleaning: Clean my enclosure regularly by spot-cleaning daily and doing a full clean monthly. Replace substrate as needed to maintain a hygienic environment.

🖐️ Handling: Due to my past, I need a handler who is experienced with boas. Handle me regularly but gently to build trust and reduce stress.

🐍 Experience Required: I am not suitable for inexperienced snake keepers. I need a handler who understands the behavior and needs of a boa constrictor and can provide the care I require.

Let’s find Beetlejuice the knowledgeable and caring forever home he deserves! 🌟💚
