amandamals asked: What would the healthy hatchling kenyan sand boa weight be?

Well, I’m not sure you can call them hatchlings, because they don’t hatch.. :)

But anyway, a neonate Kenyan sand boa can really vary in weight. It has to do with the size of the mother, the size of the litter, and a couple other factors like genetics. Sometimes females will have a huge litter of tiny babies, and sometimes they’ll have a small litter of massive babies. I’ve had females do one thing one year, and another thing a few years later.

The weights I have seen in newborns ranges from 6g-15g. You can plus or minus a gram here or there and it should be fine. Hope that helps!
