Kenyan Sand Boas are small snakes found in North Africa.
They rarely grow to more than 3ft and males are considerably smaller.
They are a burrowing snake and can be found in semi desert and scrublands and prefer
areas with loose sand or soil. Their heads are often described as shovel shaped and
are perfectly adapted to push their way underground.
They feed on small mammals often caught by surprise as they pass by the boa’s burrow.
They sit with only their head exposed and are very well camouflaged.
Unlike most reptiles, Boas give birth to live young instead of laying eggs.
Kenny is a very friendly and loves being handled. He is only small so is great at
helping people over come their fears of snakes or for first time snake encounters.
