A brief snippet about Sonora Desert 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
Rio Bravo Reptiles: Mexican Boas

At Rio Bravo Reptiles we have concentrated our efforts on three groups of Boa from Mexico for which we have reasonable assurance and data on locality of origin. Upper Yucatan or Can Cun boas, Sonoran desert boas and Dwarf or Tarahumara mountain boas. We fervently hope we can acquire more of these beautiful and fascinating boas!

The Sonoran Desert Boa -

The Sonoran Desert boa is actually a Mexican form of the Boa constrictor imperator. Found mostly in the Northern fringe of the Sonoran Desert of Mexico, these boas rarely get above 5 feet (120 240 centimeters), with some reaching sexual maturity at 4 feet. Larger Sonoran boas are uncommon, but possible. It is the northernmost living boa.

Tarahumara Mountain Boa -

One very small Sonoran Desert Boa is the Tarahumara Mountain Boa. The Sierra Tarahumara lies in the northern states of Chihuahua and Sonora Mexico. These areas of high peaks, forested plateaus and deeply eroded riparian canyons are sometimes referred to as Sky Islands in the desert. It is here at altitudes of 4000 feet or more where these dwarf boas (Boa c. imperator) originated.
