By locality:

    Trinidad redtail boas (Boa c. constrictor)

    Trinidad redtail boas (Boa c. constrictor) had long been considered as the longest Boa constrictors. That misbelief was based on James Oliver's book in 1963, where the author described a 5,5m (18+ ft) long specimen caught in Trinidad. As it turned out later, that giant was a misidentified green anaconda (Eunectes murinus).

    However, Trinidad redtails are considered as a big bodied locality, they can reach 3m (10 ft) in length. Adults have hazelnut brown primary colors and patterns with lot of contrast. Though red tail is recognizable, it is not as red as other populations like Suriname. Trinidad redtail boas are the only known island form of Boa c. constrictor.

    They are very rare in both Europe and overseas, therefore they command a high value. Rob Tudehope was the first who bred them successfully in the US.
    Regurgitation has not been noticed with this locality, however I recommend to feed them with moderate sized preys much like other Boa c. constrictors.
