BOA CONSTRICTOR

SCIENTIFIC NAME:  Boa constrictor

HABITAT:  A wide range of habitats from semi-desert regions in Mexico to moist rain forests of Central and South America.

CONSERVATION STATUS: Least Concern
                                                   

FUN FACT: 

The boa constrictor is ovoviviparous, giving birth to live young.  Although no true placental connection between mother and young exists (as in mammals) there is a mechanism to allow exchange of oxygen and other necessary elements.
