A boa is a non-venomous snake, located in Central and South America, including Mexico, Madagascar, and Reunion island. Boa constrictors grow to be about 4 meters in length, making it the longest bodied of their species, and they give birth to live young. Boas have many teeth in their mouth, totaling about one hundred and inwardly curved.

They are commonly cream, grey, and brown, which serves as their base colors, and they have reddish-brown markings on their bodies. Boas are more defensive than pythons, and they tend to flee in the face of confrontation. When boas are handled, they tend to move around and check things out, as they are curious creatures. Pythons, on the other hand, are the largest snakes in the world.

Pythons are located in Africa and Asia, and they populate the vast and dense forest in mainly dry areas, and they often enjoy perching on the trees. A python's colorations are oddly shaped dark color blotches with a light color on the rest of the body, and they lay eggs. Pythons are aggressive attackers, but they do not destroy their prey with their teeth. Their target is crushed by constriction using their powerful muscles. They have many teeth on their upper jaw, and on the lower jaw about half as many.

Almost everybody knows that Boa and Python are names of snakes, but there are more to Python and Boa than just names of snakes. For developers or coders, Python is nothing but the name of a programming language. Boa, on the other hand, is the name of an Integrated Desktop Environment or IDE. Python has now become a popular programming language because it has made coding very simple. For instance, most programming languages use curly braces when writing codes to indicate the beginning and end of a line. In the case of Python, it indicates the beginning and end of a line with just a change in the indentation. Boa is a software program that offers a simplistic method or approach to coding. You can easily use Boa, an IDE, to write codes to create different applications. There are so many tools in Boa that allow you to debug for errors, and do different kinds of manipulations when writing codes.

Some people assume that python and boa are known to be two different types of snakes that may seem similar when you see them in the wild. One of the main differences is where you will see them. You should know that pythons and boas are normally found in America, but it may be common to see a python there. Another thing that you should know is their reproduction is also going to be different from each other. Boas will always be near their young, while pythons will start to lay some eggs. Pythons will also come with upper jawbones, but you should know that their habitats are always different from each other.
