Head and tongue of a boa constrictor
Boa Constrictors are one of the largest snakes in the world. They aren't poisonous, but they surely can do a mighty job of capturing their prey. The constructor adopted the name by the way it terminates its prey, constricting their bodies around and allowing no air to circulate. They use their flickering tongue to pick up scent.
