Dumerils ground boa - Akoma

SASHA, boa constrictor

Like many large snakes, Sasha the Boa Constrictor grew larger than what her previous owners were equipped to handle. This species can reach lengths of 13 feet and weigh approximately 60 lbs! They are found in a variety of habitats from rainforests to semi-desert areas in Central and South America. Due to her mild temperament she is an important ambassador that helps to dispel the many myths and fears surrounding snakes.
