Ampliamente difundida en Centro y Sudamérica, desde el centro de México hasta Argentina. La boa constrictor es una serpiente robusta y muy fuerte. Los ejemplares de mayor tamaño proceden de la cuenca del Amazonas y pertenecen a la subespecie Boa constrictor constrictor, pudiendo alcanzar más de 4 metros de longitud. La cabeza es grande y triangular, estando bien delimitada del cuerpo por medio de un cuello más estrecho. Toda la coronilla está recubierta de pequeñas escamas uniformes.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
