    Central American Boas?

    Hi all I need some info on Central American Boas? There is a lot of confusing info on how big they will get as adult. Some sites say 3 to 5 Feet, Others say 5 to 7 feet. I saw one site saying they can get up 8 to 10 feet. Which of these are accurate? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    In general they stay smaller than other boa imperator. I would suggest reading the info at this site as he's considered the authority on locality critters. http://www.cuttingedgeherp.com/

    I have a pair of Nicaraguan males that are 3 years old and almost 4 feet. Iím pretty sure they will top out about 4.5 feet at 5 years old. Females seem to be in the 5-6 foot range. Different localities of CA boas might be smaller or larger than others.

    They were kinda edgy when I first got them but now they are totally chill and incredible animals. Feeding is never an issue and they have a bold personality. I can open the cage and clean and they wonít flinch. I have them in AP T-10ís

    Re: Central American Boas?

    Well in terms of size of the various localities of Central American Boas (Boa imperator) - there is a pretty good size range. Basically anything from 4-10 feet is possible, with 9-10 feet representing a very large female Columbian imperator Boa. And 4-5 feet being females of the dwarf localities (such as Tarahumara Mountain, Tamaulipas Cloud Forest, & Crawl Cay) But most localities tend to average about 5-7 feet.
    1.1 Pure Hog Island Boas - "Boss & Lulu"
    1.0 F1 pure Kalaotoa SD Retic - "Kal El"
    0.1 Tarahumara Mt. Boa
    (Boa sigma)
    1.1 Tamaulipas Cloud Forest Boa (Boa imperator)
    0.1 Ivory/Super YB Ball Python - "Ivory"
