Only range map I can find for Epicrates maurus:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3166281/

When I look at the range map, I can tell that it is incomplete. It shows huge gaps in the Savanna regions of Venezuela wherer the species is likely common. Same for regions of Guyana & Suriname.

Based on the common name (Colombian), their actual range map, and knowing that many "Brazilian" rainbow boas were imported from Suriname, my guess is that Venezuela or Suriname may have been the origins for most captive-bred animals.

That all original captive stock came from ONLY Colombia seems quite unlikely - especially when one considers how common animal & reptile poaching is in most poor nations.
