:What is the differance between the suriname and columbian boas? And are there size or temperment one of the differances?
Suriname (and Guyanan) Boas get larger, faster than Colombians and have a tendency to be more aggressive. Whereas a Colombian boa may reach 6-8 feet, it is not uncommon for a Suriname Boa to be over 10 feet long (and much heavier bodied). They are significantly bigger snakes. (I have had Colombian Boas that get up to about 4 feet in the first 2 years then slowly growth to 6+. My Surinam male grew from a mouse easting 2.5 feet to a 7 foot snake in one year, and didn't look like he was slowing down any when he died due to an accident.)
Surinames often aren't as docile as Colombian Boas as well. They aren't all bad, but some can be. Colombians tend to be more predictably docile.
