Russian Sand Boa Description
  The Russian Sand Boa is less striking in color than many boa constrictors. Because of their size and easy care requirements, they can make good pets for beginners or experienced snake keepers alike. They are often fairly docile and many eat readily. Although they can be aggressive at feeding time, they are known to be quite tame during handling and rarely bite out of fear. In the wild, they live in hot, sandy areas. During the day, they shelter, while in the evening, they come out to hunt. They kill their prey by constriction.
