Is it true that boa snakes didn't start constricting until 1940-1950 after evolutionary breeding eliminated their functioning poison glands ?

    Where did you ever hear that? The answer is "no, it isn't true".

    NO, boids evolved a LOONG time before 1940/50, and they evolved BEFORE venomous snakes!

    No, that's not true.

    Venomous snakes evolved from non-venomous snakes, not vice versa. Boas and pythons are some of the oldest known snake lineages. None of them is venomous. The venomous snakes belong to the group of "advanced snakes."

    Constrictors have always killed their prey this way. There is nothing to the evolution theory.
