Definitely not a boa, but a python. You can tell by the big scales on their head, the pit organs above the mouth, the round snout etc. Must be a rarely kept one. I don't know the species, sorry.

Well it's wonderful! Since it's captive, would you please mention which zoo in the habitat and add this to the Captive Animals mission? It helps separate wildlife from captive animals. http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/7973...
Thank you!
