Brooklyn is a beautiful Columbian Boa Constrictor who came to us in 2022 after being found on the balcony of an apartment in Brooklyn, NY. Originally brought to the Animal Care Centers of NYC, she was transferred to Popcorn Park, where she will enjoy lifelong sanctuary and serve as an educational ambassador for visitors.
Brooklyn is 17 years old, weights 45 pounds, and is 8 feet long. Boa Constrictors range in size, but can grow up to 16 feet requiring ample space not typically found in a NY City apartment. Snakes like Brooklyn are very active, alert and strong. Boas have the strength to escape improper enclosures and should always be handled by an expierenced handler.
Harley (short for Harlem), is a new resident of Popcorn Park, arriving in March of 2023 at the age of 5. Although Harley was loved a great deal by her prior family, as she aged and grew bigger each year they found themselves unable to care for her. As you can imagine, caring for boa's as big as Harley is no small task. Though she is several years younger than Brooklyn, the two became fast friends. You can often see them intertwined and hanging out side by side in our Reptile House.
Our two Big-City ladies are both new to the Refuge and would love to make new friends! Will you consider sponsoring them today?
