Couple of things i'd like to add.
The the old world (asia, africa) do not have boas of any sort. The snake in the congo would not be a boa or anaconda (which is a type of boa).
The old world has only pythons. So the animal they would be looking for would not be a boa or anaconda.
Second, having owned boas before I can confirm that they have "claws" near their anal flap on both sides are a pair of small spurs. they look
like tinsy claws. They are in fact the vestiges of what used to be their legs. they can even articulate them a little bit. You have to look
carefully though because they are no bigger than the scales of the snake, although usually of different color. Ie if the scales on the belly are
cream colored the spurs will be rust brown or something similar.
Personally I believe that there have got to be a few monster sized pythons and boas out there. Maybe even 40 feet somewhere.
