Nagini was kept as a pet by a young man. When the man decided to travel abroad, he left the boa constrictor with his parents. Only he never came back.

Where does he feel most at home?

You will find the boa constrictor in the moist and warm tropical rainforests of Central- and South-America.

What's his favourite food?

Boas like rodents, birds and monkeys.

Fun fact

They don’t lay eggs. The eggs hatch in the mother’s body, so it looks like the young are born. This is called ‘ovoviviparity’.
