Boa is a fairly large snake native to the West Indies.
Wild-caught Haitian Boas are usually somewhat aggressive
and nervous when first caught. They do become quite
docile once they are accustomed to their surroundings
and used to being handled. Because it is difficult to
feed young captive born Haitian Boas, they are not commonly
available. The Haitian Boa usually lives in damp, wooded
regions. They are nocturnal, so their activity is at
night. They will rarely move in the daytime and when
they do, it is very slowly. They are primarily arboreal,
which means they spend much of their time in trees.
If a Haitian Boa is frightened, it will emit a foul
smelling musk from their anal glands. They have slender,
agile bodies, which enables them to climb trees.
