Boa constrictor amarali

Subspecies Boa constrictor amarali belongs to smaller forms of Boa constrictor and captive breed is not as common as by other variants. This subspecies was defined by Stull in 1932. In Europe we can say relatively rare. Boa constrictor amarali area of range is in narrow band around Sao Paulo down to Bolivian part of Pantanal. For these Boa constrictors is typical butterfly pattern and very short tail with a few saddles.

Head of this beautiful subspecies is quiet robust and thank to its size seems to be dumpy-looking. Exemplars with ash-colored ground are called “silverbacks”. These Boa constrictors are from area near Sao Paulo and from several localities in Bolivia. They are one of the original blood stream in amarali subspecies, in Europe called Danish Bloodline.

Brazilian form of Boa constrictor amarali includes as classic silverbacks as more colored exemplars. Breeding of this subspecies is more complicated than for example Boa constrictor imperator. By Sao Paulo population and Danish Bloodline was identified vomiting trend caused by not exactly defined reasons. Trend can be caused by non-relevant breeding conditions as temperature and humidity, but can be also caused by feeding improper prey size. Therefore is generally more suitable to buy and breed Boa constrictors amarali from CB than wild caught. Stress from animal adapting from nature to “cage” can add more negative influences and increase the danger of healthy problems up to death. Exemplars from this area are in youth cinereous, adult are getting bronze up to light brown. Western exemplars of Boa constrictor amarali usually have very nice contrast coloration.

About Bolivian Boa constrictor amarali we can write almost the same as about Brazilian ones. In this range are as silverbacks as contrast colored exemplars near bronze and brown. For locality breeding is generally good to keep the parental Boa constrictors amarali from significant localities and not to crossbreed animals from different areas.
