A search is under way to find a boa constrictor snake believed to be "at large" in a suburb of Sydney, Australia.

I saw this about the killer boa.
It's not as if they haven't got much that will kill everyone down there, lol

"This thing would take a full-sized kangaroo mate, no problem," Mr Cade said. "The fear is that a young kid will be playing in the back yard, and this snake will mosey on up."
Who are these people..... A fully grown roo would be one hell of a challenge for a boa !

I thought the same! They got plenty of stuff that could murder you horrifically, a boa must be like a puppy to them

Honestly couldn't help but laugh at this! It sounded so ridiculous :roll2: I've heard of boas eating rabbits, perhaps it could eat a baby roo, but it certainly would struggle against a full sized one! I think that a quick moving, big roo would do more harm to anyone than a big slow moving snake!

This may be old but came across it last year.articles included “killer snakes capable of crushing small child” it’s about the aesculapian snakes on regents canal. As soon as you tell someone a snake can push 6 foot they loose they're minds. The fact they could slide through a toilet roll tube with room to spare means nothing.
There is something captivating about a snake particularly an alien species. There is a legendary “python of goonhilly downs” in Cornwall. Turns out it’s a boa constrictor someone has taken outdoor snaps of over a couple of years. I still keep my eye out for it fake or not. Maybe it’s been eaten by the beast of Bodmin

A roo would be a challenge for a boa, I wonder if a roo would attack a boa?

They have no trouble attacking people - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WGo4li2K0o

A large roo can easily put you in hospital if you corner or provoke it.

A one metre (3ft) long snake has escaped in the French city of Rennes, terrifying local residents.

Isis the python got loose in her owner's apartment block on Rue du Pré Perché in the city centre on Tuesday.

Signs quickly appeared throughout the building warning residents "not to leave your children alone" in the green space outside.
Really.... whoever heard of a child eating royal python !!
