Hi! My name is Linguini! I am a Common Boa Imperator.

I was found as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me find my new home!

I am a large snake that is currently about 5 ft long. My average length is between 5 and 9 ft long but I can grow as long as 12 ft! My lifespan can be from 20 - 30 yrs but again, some of us live 40 yrs long! To be honest, I am a bit too skinny for my length so I will need to fatten up a bit.

I'm also very healthy and I am a great eater! As a young and active boa, I require my own habitat that is secure. I have managed to get out on a few occasions, clearly, so my habitat will require a lock.

With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life! Here is a great link where you can learn more about me > https://www.exotic-pets.co.uk/common-boa.html

Description:
The Colombian boa constrictor is the most widely kept boa constrictor in the pet industry. Colombian boas have become popular due to being docile and having more “personality,” in that they seem to be more curious about their surroundings than some other snakes. Colombian boa constrictors make great pets, and they are available in a vast array of appealing color and pattern morphs. Proper care can be provided even by beginner hobbyists, but due to their potentially large size and lengthy life span, boas are best suited for moderate- and advanced-level keepers. With reptile health and wellness prioritized. Female Colombian boa constrictors may reach 10 feet in length, though this is rare for B. c. imperator, and the average adult size for females is usually 6 to 8 feet. Males are smaller, usually 5 to 7 feet in length. Boas are very long-lived reptiles. There are documented cases of captive boas living longer than 40 years; however, the average captive life span is 20 to 30 years. Please consider this carefully before bringing a boa home.
