Humans definitely impact on the lives of boas. We are slowly but gradually destroying their habits thus killing the boa's homes in South America. Humans also keep these magnificent creatures as pets, keeping them captive in cages. Bottom line, boas of all kinds are affected by man. ;D -From a 7th grader, studying for her project on Emerald Tree Boas! <33

Snakes that are like a boa constrictor?

an odd question. I'll assume you're refering to the "common" boa, Boa Constrictor Imperator, from Colombia. Red tails are considered Boa Constrictor Constrictor and found in different countries. However, don't just look to subspecies to find differences, there is also wide variation within localities. Hog Island Boas, Corn Island Boas, and Nicaraguan are all BCI's from different places, and all very different. If you want other sub species, there are : Boa Constrictor amarali Boa Constrictor Constrictor Boa Constrictor imperator Boa Constrictor longicauda Boa Constrictor melanogaster Boa Constrictor nebulosus Boa Constrictor occidentalis Boa Constrictor orophias Boa Constrictor ortonii Boa Constrictor sabogae If you look at other boas, rosy's, Kenyan sand, rubber, rainbow, emerald tree (to name a few) you'll see that even though a species has the name of "boa" it's nothing like a boa constrictor. It would help if your question was more specific, what similarities are you looking for? Size? Temperment? Captive care? Boa constrictors are in the 'Boa' genus, which is part of the 'Boidae' snake family. So if you are vague about the simularities then any snake in this family are like a boa constrictor. Main types of snake in this family include: Constrictors; Boas; Anacondas and Pythons.
