Boa Constrictor

The Boa Constrictor is a large, heavy snake that is a member of the Boidae Family. It can reach lengths of 3 - 13 feet and weigh up to 60 lbs.  Females are longer and wider than males. Boa Constrictors are found in Central and South America and some islands in the Caribbean.

There are many colour variations but typically the snakes have a brown, grey or tan base colour with a brown or reddish "saddle" pattern.  

The head has an arrow shape and has distinctive stripes.  There is a stripe that runs from the snout to the back of the head, another that runs from the snout to the eyes, and a third that runs from the eyes to the jaw.

The Boa Constrictor can be found in the Americas Section of the Toronto Zoo.

Remarkable
Reptiles !

In the Book "The lectures of Linnaeus concerning the Animal Kingdom", published about 100 years ago, Carl Linnaeus wrote in the beginning of his Chapter on Amphibia that animals in this Chapter are "the ugliest, most cruel and most poisoning".  He expressed that he was happy that our Creator put rather few of these animals into this class.  If there had been more, they would have hurt the other species.

Carl Linnaeus (1701-1778) was a Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist.  He is known as the father of taxonomy and the one who laid the foundations for our current biological naming scheme.
