    I`ts gotta be a BCI.But it doesn`t have to be,it can be a cross.Because when the first exotic snakes were brought to europe and america they didn`t know about if it was a BCC,BCI,Ortoni Amarali,Occidentalis,just that it was a boa constrictor then later the redtailboas appeared and where red to eachother .So many boas kept in captivityare cossbred.Almost all of them actually except the ones that are 100%for example surinames.

    Bci for sure... You can do a scale count.. This is the best and only way to know for sure...
    According to Philippe de Vosjoli the scale counts are as follows

    BCI - Imperator
    Less than 253 ventral scales
    Midbody scale count 55-79
    21 or more dorsal blotches (Avg 22 to 30)

    BCC - Constrictor
    234 to 250 ventral scales
    Midbody scale count 89-95
    Less than 20 dorsal blotches (Avg. 15 to 20)

    This may confuse some people but because of these specification some people believe that the Colombian boa constrictor falls into the BCC category. Jeff Ronne is one of these.
    The best way to count the scales is to get a shedding and count them that way...
    I hope I could help..

    8)To me it looks like it could be BCI as i have seen lots of them that are that light silverish gray color.. But then again it could be a cross to,, whats the tail color and do you have any other pics???
