Hog Islands Boas are much smaller compared to the Common Boa Constrictor. The average length is 4-6ft, the females generally have a bulkier appearance compared to the slender looking male.
Their overall appearance is what you would expect of a Boa species; the head is flat, wider at the jaw line with heat pits present along the top lip. The eyes have a two-tone appearance with a vertical pupil. The scales of the Hog Island Boa are smooth and soft compared to other species, they can also change colour depending on their mood, day/night, temperature and health.
The captive care of the Hog Island Boa is similar to the Common Boa Constrictor.
