Question Small Boids

I'm just compiling a list of boids that are usually classified as Small or at least "Smaller"...so far I have:

-All Antaresia (Children's, Spotted, Anthill and Stimsons)
-Rosy Boas
-All Sand Boas
-Solomon Island Ground Boas
-Ball Pythons
-Brazilian Rainbow Boas

Anyone want to add to the list for me? I know I'm missing a sh*t load! lol

Jenn

You've got most of them, but there's Calabar pythons and Rubber boas.(both not yet being produced in Canada)
Candoia Aspera, the viper boa is also a nice small boid. You also missed Angolan Pythons

Brazilian Rainbows while being slender can get quite long and some will hit 6 foot. If you consider them small, you might as well include most of the other Epicrates, and the insular boa constrictors (Hog Island boas)
and maybe Borneo Bloods and Womas and Dumerils , depends whether your criteria is length or overall mass

No one who has ever handled a fully grown blood python classes them as a "small boid", length notwithstanding.

Yeah I'm mostly talking about width to be honest. So maybe I should have said all Small and Slender boids lol
