Hogg Island Boa Description
  The Hogg Island Boa or Hog Isle Boa is often confused with the Clouded Boa, but is a lovely boa and much more docile than the Clouded Boa. Because it is smaller in size, it is a bit less demanding in care than many boas. The care for a Hog Island Boas is very similar to that of the Columbian Boa and the Red-Tail Boas. Though they are generally docile and calm, Hog Island Boas will hiss, strike, and bite if threatened.
