BI or BC?

Hey fellow reptile friends!

I recently purchased a boa constrictor and she is just beautiful. She was listed as a red tail boa on Craigslist and about a year old. Upon doing more research I realized there are actually different kinds and she may not be a true red tail. Can you guys help me out and maybe provide more info?

Here is a link to some photos and videos of her:

I did my research on size, temperament, eating and enclosures, I guess just not on the different species. Do I have a true red tail boa or the imperator? Iím a little fuzzy on the differences and cannot tell myself.

Also, it seems many other female boas are quite larger than this at a year old. Do you think she was being underfed?

This is my first Boa! Lol forgive me if I should know some of these things but Iíve always stuck with corn snakes and ball pythons, Iím branching out haha!

Looks like a BI but some more size and you'll see if it is or not.

It looks a little small but otherwise outwardly healthy. Just feed it correctly and it'll be fine.
