Pet snakes need housing appropriate to their size so that they have the room they need to move around with ease. The temperature also has to be kept consistent with that of the natural habitat of the snake, which is between 25 and 30. It is important to have a thermometer in the cage to let you know what the temperature is because if it is a few degrees higher or lower than what it should be your pet won't eat.
Highly trained guard dogs are often called out for high profile duty like rescue, crowd control, riot control, and even airport patrol. They work long hours, and don't get many breaks. Because they are used for such important items and duties, they need special care in diet. This means that a good diet is needed to keep their energy levels up and keeping them from getting out of shape.

A Brazilian Rainbow Boa will thrive in captivity as long as you keep it clean, safe and well fed. The typical size of an adult on this variety of snake is from four to seven feet although there have been some that grew to a length of twenty feet. For this reason, this snake needs lots of space in which it can move about freely. Along with a large cage, you need to keep the humidity in the cage quite high and always have a bowl of fresh water inside.
