Boas, also called Boids, are a family of snakes that use constriction rather than venom to subdue and kill their prey. Boas are native to Africa, America, Asia, Europe and some Pacific Islands. Boas differ from pythons in two main ways the most notable of these being that boas give birth to live young.

How popular are Boa Constrictar?

They're quite popular for those keepers who have gained some experience in keeping reptiles. They're not suitable as a 'beginner' species - due to their unpredictable nature, and requirement for large living quarters as adults - and food to match !


Can boa constrictors strangle a human to death?

In very rare cases and under unique conditions. The person would have to be negligent, drunk and fairly weak. A responsible owner would not handle an aggressive animal by themselves, and I am yet to see a boa that could not be untangled by a helper. They also have no desire to kill a human since it is not food. Even a scared animal will lash out by biting, not constricting.

In the cases where this has happened it has ALWAYS been a negligent keeper handling a large animal (I mean LARGE, not average) by themselves, usually drunk, and the snake was merely trying to get a good grip to keep from falling off their shoulders, meaning they held onto the neck. Bad placement of the animal, bad husbandry and bad handling techniques are the cause of ALL large constrictor deaths in the US. Even including these it is a very rare event, averaging one every 2 years, including all large constrictor species. When put up against the 440+ horse related deaths every year these animals are hardly dangerous. You have a better chance of getting killed by a runaway golf ball.

What is better as a pet Ball Python or Boa pros and cons?

The Royal Python (Python regius) would be the better of the two for a first-time keeper. The Boa constrictor grows to around 3 metres and is a heavy-bodied, and unpredictable snake.

It also depends on what you're looking for in a snake. A ball python does nothing interesting, just sits in it's hide all day. Not all boas grow big, such as the Hogg Island boa which is a dwarf species of boa constrictor that rarely gets over 5 ft, or the rainbow boa (the females are 6-7 ft). Ball pythons come in an assortment of morphs, while boas do have many morphs they do not have as much as the ball python. Ball pythons are also notorious for feeding problems, while boas generally are not. I would not say boas are unpredictable, some just have really strong feeding responses or are nervous. There are so many boa species out there, that are smaller or the same size as ball pythons without all the hassle, though they're not as forgiving of husbandry mistakes. I could on and on about pros and cons, but I'll stop there.
