The Argentine boa constrictor (Boa constrictor occidentalis) is one of eight to 10 subspecies of the genus Boa. This relatively heavy-bodied boa ranges in size from 6 to 10 feet in length. They range from black specimens with a high rate of contrasting white to specimens exhibiting varying degrees of burnt-orange to red. Despite their beauty, Argentines have often been overlooked in favor of other color morphs.
