Suriname Red Tail Boa
Scientific Name:
Boa constrictor constrictor
Family Name:
They can grow up to ten feet in length.
They have pale colors beneath the striking patterns on their skin, typically a soft gray or tan. The name "red-tail" clearly refers to the deep red markings on their tails as well as the red saddle markings along their backs.
In the wild Suriname Red Tail Boas feed on small mammals and the occasional bird. In captivity a diet of mice, rats, and rabbits is sufficient, depending on the size of the boa.

Suriname Red Tail Boa Description
  The Suriname Red Tail Boa is fairly non-aggressive and calm, as well as not being fussy eaters, so they make a fasinating and interesting specimen for snake lovers across the globe. Because of their large size, it can be difficult for even the seasoned of snake keepers. In the wild, they live in trees and on the ground in very humid forests. They are primarily nocturnal. Suriname Red Tail Boas are large, hardy, powerful snakes and have a lifespan of somewhere between 20 to 25 years.
