Boa Constrictor can strike if they perceive a threat

A week ago, a Liverpool woman rendered the Merseyside police officers shocked and speechless when she had found an 8ft Boa Constrictor resting in her bathroom. The police were reportedly summoned by a similar nature of emergency call by the woman to a flat in Birkenhead, Wirral, and much to their astonishment, they had stumbled upon an eight-foot-long boa constrictor slithering across her sink and the bath.

The constable to the Merseyside police, Constable Eastwood had confirmed the snake to be a Boa Constrictor of a similar type, a heavy-bodied non-venomous snake found in tropical Central and South America, which was a cousin to anaconda.

He had told the media that these reptiles weighed 100 pounds or more, grew up to 13ft long and could strike if they perceived a threat. The police had put the reptile into a large, safe container, and planned arrangements to house the snake temporarily at a local rescue facility.
