    Boas aren't particularly dangerous or a factor here. Pythons are another matter, especially for children and pets. Both are non-poisonous.
    The big threats down here are water moccasins, rattlers and coral snakes.

    Oh, and the rain can drive fire ants into your house. Victims of those bites can die of anaphylactic shock in extreme cases.
