Poirot – Common Boa Constrictor
More information about this animal

Poirot is an 8-foot long common boa constrictor, he weighs around 12kg.

He is aptly named Poirot as he has an amazing moustache. His owner has had him since he was a hatchling, so he has been handled constantly since then. We know he would be brilliant for posing with actors/models on set. He is a curious snake but very laid back so Poirot can be placed on props and pose for the camera with ease.

Snakes in media

Snakes are a brilliant animal to use in advertising as they always give that exotic feel. It’s especially fun using them in a comical way like Carlsberg did in their advert in 2014, it really captures the audience as it portrays snakes in a fun and silly manner.
