MISSOULA — We met up with Jeff the Nature Guy from ZooMontana to learn about a Colombian red tailed boa constrictor that calls the zoo home.

Watch the video above to learn more.

The typical Colombian red tail boa size is between 6' and 10' in length when kept in captivity -- sometimes even longer.

A female Colombian red tail boa can grow to be between 7' and 10' long while males will usually stop growing after they reach 6' to 8'.
