Is Boa Constrictor
They help control the rodent population and even the insect population from spreading diseases. They can also be used meat, skin, and even medicine. The medicine is made from the oil in their skin.
Captive bred boa constrictors are known for being well-tempered, docile creatures. Although imported Mexican and Central American boas tend to be a bit more aggressive. When properly handled and maintained, boa constrictors make relatively safe pets. Boa constrictors will bite if they feel threatened, and a bite coming from a large snake can hurt a lot.
