Muller Sand Boa


Latin Name: Gongylophis muelleri

Sex: Currently Unknown

Muller’s Sand Boas, on average, grow to be 3 feet (36 inches) and have a life span of up to 25 years. Sand boas require deep substrate, usually between 2 and 4 inches deep, this allows them to dig and preform natural behaviours. A large water bowl big enough to fit themselves in, this allows them to drink, cool down and help shedding skin and should be placed in the cool end so not to allow humidity levels to exceed 50%. Muller’s boas, like most snakes, eat defrosted rodents such as rats and mice. A basking spot of 75 Fahrenheit (24 Celsius) would be ample.
