Question
i have a 6 foot female hypo columbian red tail boa and a 5 foot 5 male burmese. is it possible to breed them with eachother

Answer
Probably not.  They are not only separate species but also from a different genus.  Breedings like that have been done but it involves a lot of trickery.  Plus Boas have live birth and pythons lay eggs so I seriously doubt that particular combination would take.
