The boa constrictor, also nicknamed the red-tailed boa or the common boa is one of the largest snakes in the world. Boas are not poisonous, but have the ability to intensely suffocate prey. Boas will surprise their prey by coiling around them and squeezing them until death. The snake can swallow its prey entirely whole, which is later digested by its strong stomach acid. After a large meal, the boa constrictor can go weeks before consuming food again.
