We have Boa
Constrictors in our breeding at the present. Breeding
group consists of three females and two males and they
occupy our biggest terrarium. However, they will be
changed to Boa Constrictor albinos soon. This group of
albinos consists of four females and two males.
Concerning breed of boas breedersí opinions differ. Our
boas are doing well if they are kept together in
terrarium. We also have the experience that if we
decreased the temperature for 2-4 weeks in autumn, the
mating didnít take place. Once we left a stable
temperature throughout the year, mating
So I think, even though in some species
necessity to come to successful mating,
it is individual in boas and it should be tested.
Pogona vitticeps as the pets. Especially my girlfriend
likes them. They are really beautiful and peaceful
lizards that wonít ever pall on you. As perhaps all

managed to clean the terrarium from the crickets. J
What ones didnít manage to eat through the day, geckos
completed at night. These Basilisks are really lovely
and cuddly. They got used to human presence very soon
and every time I put my hand into terrarium they
Unfortunately, I had to get over with the breeding of
these Basilisks due to lack of time that they really
