Boa Constrictor

Boa constrictor

Animals of All Regions Back
Boa constrictors are both terrestrial (ground dwelling) and arboreal (tree dwelling), and are great at camouflage. Depending on the habitat they are trying to blend into, their bodies can be many different shades of tan, brown, gray and black. The patterns can also vary. Boas are non-venomous constrictors, meaning that they squeeze their prey. Their jaws can stretch wide to swallow their prey whole. These snakes are solitary and nocturnal.
