Boa constrictors are one of the most popular pet species that have been kept as pets in the UK since the 1960’s. They would originally be native to central America from the southern part of Mexico down to northern Columbia. The taxonomy (scientific classification) of Boa’s has attracted a lot of interest in the last decade and while these used to be classified as the smaller northern subspecies “Boa constrictor imperator” they have now been elevated to full species status of “Boa imperator” to distinguish them from the larger “Boa constrictor” or red-tailed boas from the southern part of their range (Columbia).

Boa’s live in the humid rainforests at low elevations and can be found on many of the offshore islands. They are ambush predators hunting mainly mammals and birds where they would hunt both at ground level as well as up in the trees as they are excellent at climbing. They are a strong powerful snake for their size and able to overpower prey that similar sized species may struggle with.

They can be short tempered and defensive when young, often letting out a loud warning hiss while arching back ready to strike. With confident handling and patience they do become very tame as adults and are often one of the most commonly used species for snake handling displays and with animal encounter experiences. Due to their size when adult, and temperament when young they are perhaps best for an intermediate keeper rather than beginner, but dedicated beginners have opted for Boas as a first pet snake for years so with the correct mindset and large enough housing there is nothing to stop them being a beginner species.

Boa’s have been selectively bred for a multitude of colour morphs over the years and this “sunglow” boa is the product of mixing both the albino gene and the Hypomelanistic gene’s together to produce an animal that as it matures will end up with a white background and bright pink markings.

*There are multiple lines of albino, this is a Kahl strain albino
