  • History

    A familiar site in zoos and even household reptilian collections, boa constrictors adapt well to captivity and may even become tame enough to handle. Thankfully, boa constrictors are not faced with any immediate risk in terms of becoming endangered or threatened. In fact, their numbers are increasing at a dramatic rate in Florida after being introduced into the wild accidentally. In Florida, they are considered an invasive species.
