adult red tail boas - How to Care for a Pet Red Tail Boa

Red Tail Boa Constrictor. The red tail boa constrictor is a medium to large sized snake from the northern parts of South America. They can get to an impressive adult size of eleven feet in length or more. They all have a beautiful silver or grey body pattern with different tones of rusty to deep red in their tails. In captivity, most boas eat mice, rats, rabbits and even chickens. Red-tailed boas aren't constant eaters; in some cases a large meal can sustain a boa for up to a month. A boa kills its prey by squeezing it to death with its powerful coils. Once its prey has suffocated, the boa constrictor consumes it whole.
