Boas are not poisonous but have the ability to intensely suffocate prey.
The snake can swallow its prey whole, and later digested by its strong stomach acid.
Boa constrictors have poor vision and therefore rely on their specialized heat-sensing cells to locate prey.
They are nocturnal.
They are mostly solitary animals that only come together to mate.
