    Hey, first off, don't panic yet ;D

    Boa constrictors are not like our normal pets. ie dogs and cats who tend to eat and then poop, eat and then poop, eat and then poop.. okay you get the idea.

    Boa constrictors, especially adults, can go a long time between defecation... They are masters of getting every nutrient out of their food items. It would not be abnormal for an adult boa to go a couple of months between defecation. Be sure to look for signs of urates as well. These can happen without the actual passing of feces.

    Also be sure to read my care guides, they cover a multitude of these types of questions....
