Amaral's Boa Description F
  The Amaral's Boa is also known as the Bolivian Boa. It is a moderately small constrictor from South America. They are very uncommon in captivity, but are interesting and beautiful snakes. The Amaral's Boa live both on the ground and in trees. They can live in tropical forests, fields, or on savannahs. They can live at all elevations and prefer dry conditions. The Boa Constrictor is able to move not only by lateral undulation, which is movement by the sideways curves of the body, but also by rectilinear movement, which moves the snake in a straight line. They kill their prey by constriction. The Amaral's Boa is one of the smaller Boa constrictor species. The saddles on the Amaral's Boa are sometimes very narrow, only four scales wide.
