About the Boa constrictor

  • The largest boa constrictor ever measured had a length of 3.60 meters! The males are usually smaller than the females.
  • The boa constrictor can, depending on the subspecies, look very different. It can be white, red, brown or black in color.
  • What is very special: The boa can adapt its skin color to the temperature! So it happens that a boa is much darker in the shade than in sunlight, where it appears much brighter!
