Kenyan Sand Boa


Species group:
 Boas, Anacondas and Pythons

Other name: Egyptian Sand Boa;
East African Sand Boa

Scientific name: Gongylophis colubrinus

Range/Habitat: The Kenyan Sand Boa is a small, burrowing Boa which is native to the arid sand deserts and scrub savannahs of northern Africa. They are nocturnal, and spend the hot day hidden under rocks and in burrows.

The Kenyan Sand Boa makes an excellent captive snake because of its generally friendly temperament. It is easy to breed, and captive bred individuals are readily available to the pet trade.
