Boa Constrictor

About Boa Constrictor

Boa Constrictors are not poisonous. They kill their prey by squeezing them so they cannot breathe and they suffocate. Even though they squeeze their prey quite tightly, they usually do not break many bones. The Boa Constrictor’s diet mainly consists of birds and mammals. They swallow their prey whole and they can digest almost everything they eat except for feathers, claws and fur. Their color and markings can vary from snake to snake but they are very well camouflaged. They can live in a variety of habitats, like the forest or the desert. They produce up to 50 eggs a year.
