This may be a dumb question, but I've never handled a Borneo or Blood. I have an Argentine Boa and a Columbian Boa and a Jungle Carpet Python, and I have to monitor my son when he handles these snakes as I'm concerned about one wrapping around his neck.

I've heard/read that Borneos and Bloods tend not to wrap around the arms of the person holding them. Do they NOT pose a threat for wrapping around the neck? In other words, assuming the snake "couldn't bite," does a Borneo pose a constriction threat for an 11-year old boy?

Thanks,
Scott
