Species: B. constrictor
They do well in captivity, become quite docile, and are a common sight in zoos. Boas can easily live to be 20 to 30 years old in captivity, with rare accounts of them over 40 years, making them a long-term commitment as a pet. Animal husbandry is the most significant factor in captive lifespan.
Female Boas have "live birth", rather than laying eggs. Fertilization by the male is internal. During copulation, females can cling to the male via a small set of "spurs" that are generally hidden below scales on either side of the vent and are actually remnants of the hind legs. The gestation period of boas is 108 days after the post ovulation shed.
They feed on smaler mamals and kill them by suffocating and crushing their body.

Excellent tight frame-filling composition, that with the way it's kind of layered horizontally really gives an idea of how big this snake is. Good technique and a well thought out shot, great work.

I love this pic. The composition with the snake filling all the space is very good.
Nice details colours and light.
