Here you can see how she postions her part of the body where the rabbit is so it gets the most heat for digestion.. Hehehehe!! what a fat girl she is.... Now she will be ready to eat again in about 2 weeks and more than likely she will go into the blue- shed after a few more days as thats what she always does, she eats well then sheds and then eats again and sheds again... shes growing really well for being as old as she is and for her size most slow down once they reach a certain size, but not big D shes just a power house... Plus shes the sweetest boa to own, never hurt no one never tried to bite and is just very easy going....

A question for ya (pardon my ignorance! )

Do they digest everything including the fur and the bones?? I've heard that some may regurgitate these items but I wasn't sure if I should believe that since they would really have to work it back up!

Its np Scarlette, they digest everything but the fur.. sometimes a snake will regurge food items, because there not warm enough or the food item was bad or the snake was held right after eatting or even if the snake is sick... Sometimes there might be a small bone or a toe nail or tooth that passes out without being digested.. But they always pass fur..
