You are living proof of the ignorance that plagues exotic pet owners and breeders. I have extensive experience with large snakes, and boa constrictors are amongst some of the tamest animals I have worked with. In my years I have been attacked and bitten by peoples poorly trained mongrel dogs on several occasions, and only once by a snake after I foolishly provoked it. So kindly don't say my pets should be illegal just because you are too ignorant, or misinformed on the subject to know better!I think it should be illegal to own a boa constrictor or any other dangerous animal. These snakes are not domesticated and to my knowledge do not understand commands. People who own these things get tired of them or they become to much work and they end up dumping them off somewhere for someone else to deal with. I live in the area and will not even get my mail or go outside in fear of this snake!!!! My kids cannot take the bus or go outside until the snake is found. It is very hard also to let out my 6 pound dog without watching it like a hawk!!
