Boa constrictor imperator, often known as the Colombian Red Tail Boa, is a sizable, robust species of snake. It belongs to the Boidae family, which includes certain Caribbean islands and regions of Central and South America. Its extremely changeable but recognizable color pattern makes it an excellent snake of both private collections and public displays.

The gentle nature of red tail boas is one of the reasons they are so well-liked. They aren’t often aggressive snakes, but even when they’re not angry, they can harm a person relatively easily by biting them or constricting them if they mistake their hand for food.


Red tail boas prefer a humidity of between 60 and 70 percent. You can keep an eye on humidity levels by using a hygrometer. For all red tail boas housed in screen top cages, moist skins made of enclosed Tupperware, Rubbermaid, or other suitably sized plastic tubs should be available.

Large pet snakes, these constrictors can grow to be eight feet long. Colombian Red Tails are not venomous or hazardous, despite their size, and cannot consume humans. Boa constrictors are excellent pets and are available in a variety of colors and morphs.

Is a red tail boa a good beginner snake?

For beginners looking for a larger pet snake, redtail boas are a popular choice. They are simple to take care of and typically extremely gentle.

 Size tank you can use 

A container with 8 square feet of floor space, such as one that is 4 feet by 2 feet, is an adequate cage for mature boas that can grow up to 8 feet long. A cage height of 18 to 24 inches is acceptable.

These snakes can achieve adult size in 3 to 5 years and can grow up to 10 feet long and 50 pounds in weight. They may reach 3 to 4 feet in length during their first year. As the snake grows, a bigger home must be supplied. To provide a snake enough room to spread out completely, the habitat should be at least as long as the snake (or longer).

Do red tail boas like to climb?

There is no such thing as a cage that is too large for a Red Tail Boa, therefore more is always better, especially if you allow for climbing space because these snakes love to climb and hang out above the ground.
