The Dumeril's Boa, also known as the Dumerils Ground Boa, is known for being a beautiful snake with a pattern designed to camoflage them on the forest floor. They have become extremely popular over the past few years among hobbyists.
Normally Dumeril's Boas, will not fight or become aggressive with each other, but if it is mating season, males will battle other males for prospective mates.
The Dumeril's Boa will grow to a length of anywhere from six to eight feet long. Their coloration forms into a brown and gray patchwork separated by black stripes. On the head, the black stripes turn into a bluish gray color. They will prey on small warm-blooded animals such as rodents and tropical birds.
Dumeril's Boa is a terrestrial snake found mostly in the forest regions of Madagascar, though some are found on the African mainland. They are known to occasionally climb trees to ambush prey, but generally these snakes prefer to remain close the ground.
