Facts

  • Eastern Boa constrictors are non-venomous snakes famous for their method of subduing prey: squeezing, or constricting, it to death.

  • Like all snakes, eastern boa constrictors evolved from four-legged ancestors. Boas are considered primitive snakes, though, because they still have some ancient features that have faded away in most snake species. That includes two functioning lungs as well as remnants of legs known as "pelvic spurs."

  • Eastern boa constrictors are one of the few snakes that can live over 20 years. In the wilderness, they have been found to live to about 30 and in captivity, they have been found to live up to 40 years.

  • Eastern boa constrictor continues to grow and reaches sexual maturity at about 2 to 3 years of age the boa constrictors shedding becomes more consistent. These snakes can then grow up to about 13 feet long though the longest reported Boa constrictor was 18 feet long.

  • Eastern boa constrictors are at the top of the food chain they do still have some predators. These predators have to be huge to even attempt taking on a boa constrictor but still, they will hunt these snakes down.
