"Boa constrictors can grow up to four metres long. They eat anything they set their sights on including birds, pigs and monkeys. They do this by grabbing their prey, wrapping their bodies around their victims until they suffocate, and finally swallowing them whole."
—Description on a plaque at the Zoo.[src]

Boa constrictor (binomial name Boa constrictor) is a large, heavy-bodied species of snake. It is a member of the family Boidae found in North, Central, and South America, as well as some islands in the Caribbean. A staple of private collections and public displays, its colour pattern is highly variable yet distinctive.[1]

On 23 June, 1991, Parselmouth Harry Potter spoke to a boa constrictor from Brazil. He unknowingly used underage magic by making the pen's glass vanish, freeing the boa. The boa then told him "Brazil, here I come. Thanks, amigo".[2]
