    Hey guys I just got a boa from apet store and cant rember for the life of me what kind it was. It was a somthing tree boa. It started with a p papone? pelone? It feeds on frogs for know. It almost looks scaleless Its not shiny at all its very dull and is brown with markings like greyis moss. Any help in figuring out what it is would be great. Thanks !

    A picture would be quite helpful.

    It sounds like the word you're looking for is 'Papuan'. As in the island of New Guinea. The Papuan tree boa aka pacific or New Guinea tree boa (Candoia carinata carinata) is probably what you have. They are quite variable in appearance, but your description does sound like one of the candoia species.
