Boa Constrictor Identification

Here is a great chart I found. I personally prefer "true red tails" (bcc) over the bci, but there are also some nice bcis. I just thought I would post this for newer members.



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Boa constrictor amarali, Amaral's boa
Boa constrictor constrictor, Red-tailed boa
Boa constrictor imperator, Common northern boa
Boa constrictor longicauda, Tumbes Peru boa
Boa constrictor melanogaster, Ecuadorian boa
Boa constrictor nebulosa, Dominican clouded boa
Boa constrictor occidentalis, Argentine boa (locally known as lampalagua, ampalagua or boa de las vizcacheras) [3]
Boa constrictor orophias, St. Lucia boa
Boa constrictor ortonii, Orton's boa
Boa constrictor sabogae, Pearl Island boa

Re: Boa Constrictor Identification

Re: Boa Constrictor Identification

yea i understand the countries... and that most of them are ______ (country) Red Tail Boa. But there's alot im unfamiliar with like several on the bottom half. Guess i should have been more specific. I dont want you to feel like im being negative cause it was nice o see and i actually learned what i think to be one of my friends is now Orophias but like i said that name doesnt mean much to me.. Does it have a more common name?

Awesome thats exactly what i was speaking of. I would have never known the "melanogaster" was a Ecudorian. Usefull info especially for me cause ive always loved RTB's and they were the first snake i ever owned, for 10+ years.

Re: Boa Constrictor Identification

The Amarali's are from Bolivia, right? Or am I mistaken?
