Madagascar boas - species


Dumeril's Boa  Acrantophis dumerili

Dumeril boas are medium size snakes. True, a 7 foot snake which weighs 20 pounds will be 'huge' by most peoples standards, but not so big in comparison to true giant snakes - like the Burmese or reticulated pythons for example. And they don't look so big when curled up in the enclosure. They average at about 4 to 6 feet.

Dumerils can be found along the western coast and southwestern regions of Madagascar. They live in a semi-arid habitat, which has a fairly low amount of rainfall.

The Dumeril boas have distinctive patterns on their heads and bodies. They have pretty black blotches along their jaws.
