She looks thin due to the ovulation swell she had made her look thin, before I put the male with her I made she she had fattened up nicely and was in prime condition, I offer her a small/med rat every 2 weeks and she finally took 1 after 8 weeks into the gestation she is on day 65 and everything going well. She stays on the warm side of the viv and comes for a drink ever few days then bk on her warm side.

I put a common male with her, I did buy him as a guyana but found out he is just a pretty common with a few widdow peaks, my own stupidity as I didn't do research into true red tails but a common male

Yeah but not at the cost of the mother that boa doesn't look like it was in good enough health to be bred fingers crossed she makes it through the hugely demanding ordeal
