A brief snippet about Hog Island Boa

A brief introduction to the species will be inserted here ..... coming soon! In the interim we have a number of links on the species, listed on this page.


Captive Care
Hog Island Boa (Boa constrictor imperator) -

Hog island boas are only found on a few islands off the coast of Honduras. It is believed that these boas are extinct in the wild. Hog island boas are a smaller form of boa and rarely exceed five feet.

Hogg Island Boa Caresheet -

The Hogg Island Boa is a particularly lovely boa. Though often confused with the Clouded Boa, the Hog Island Boa is a bit more docile and because of its smaller size, it is a bit less demanding in care than many boas.

Hogg Island Boa Caresheet (Boa constrictor ssp.) - RID

The Hogg Island Boa is also commonly known as the Hog Island or the Hog Isle Boa, and belongs to the sub-species imperator. Hogg Island boas are native to the Cayos Cachinos Islands of Santa Elena, Roatan and Guanaja and gain their name from the nickname of Cayo de los Cachinos, ‘Hogg Island’. This stunningly beautiful snake, which once commonly inhabited tropical rainforests, is sadly now believed to be extinct in the wild, and has not been seen on Hogg Island since the mid 1980s. Worryingly, this unique serpent is now also becoming rare in captivity, and responsible breeding and proper care is essential to its survival.

Boa - USA

Welcome to Boa Dome, thank you for stopping in, ever since I was a small boy I was addicted to catching and keeping indigenous reptiles, and the occasional Canadian garter snake from the pet store. I successfully bred eastern garters in my mothers basement at the age of 12. there is no feeling like actually watching your dedicated hard work and patience pay off with a beautiful litter of herps.

Exotic Encounter Reptiles

Welcome to Exotic Encounter Reptiles! In the coming weeks and months this site will be under construction, so check back frequently to see what's new. If you have any questions about the site or suggestions on how we can make it better please let us now. Our Mission Is to provide only the best captive bred reptiles available anywhere. While the appearance of any pet is important, we believe that the animal must have the will to survive. Natural selection occurs even in captive breeding, force feeding an animal because one hopes to replicate an appearance can only lead to the production of more problem feeders. We sell only healthy animals that are feeding on their own.

The history of Prehistoric Pets begins in 1988 when an ex-fisherman named Jay Brewer and his wife Becky opened a pet store in Fountain Valley, CA. The store was called Pet Country, and while stocking a variety of pets and pet supplies, the store was one of the first in the area to stock a large supply of reptiles. Pet Country began circulating a nationwide price list and soon adopted the slogan "The Reptile Leaders".
