"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]

The Boa constrictor (binomial name Boa constrictor) is a large, heavy-bodied species of snake, a member of the family Boidae.[3]

History

On 23 June, 1991, Parselmouth Harry Potter spoke to a boa constrictor from Brazil that was in captivity at a Zoo in Surrey. Harry unknowingly used underage magic by making the glass of its enclosure vanish, freeing the boa. The boa then said to him "Brazil, here I come. Thanksss, amigo", before leaving.[1]
