Boas ( Family Boidae) Pythons (Family Pythonidae)
Boas and Pythons are among the giant and the biggest  snakes in the world. So far, there are 37 known species of boas while only 27 species of pythons are known.

Most boas and pythons are found within the tropical areas of the world while some can  still be found in the temperate climate. The boas and pythons are responsible of some of the most dangerous snake attacks cases in the world Boas and pythons are masters when it comes to getting their food which is mostly by constriction of their prey which they normally do by their sensitive tongue which can sense their prey's body heat even in the dead of the night. The major difference between a boa and a python is that like any other reptile, they lay eggs while pythons give birth to live pythons.
