Actually Joris boa constrictors are one of the only species that give birth to their babies, they do have eggs but the eggs are kept inside mummy snake until ready to lay.

Yeah Badwool Pandora is totally nackered now hehe poor girl didn't even have the effort to hiss at me.

Aye in the wild you would be right they have little chance of surviving from predation - although they're not a cannibalistic snake like a king they can eat siblings if forced to or even by mistake (two snakes eating the same meal, neither backing down)
However in captivity we try to eliminate as many risks as possible to the babies, until their first shed where they get harder scales we keep them on damp paper to avoid any injury or infection as their first two days they drag whats left of their cord and egg around with them. We keep them separate mostly to avoid them eating each other too and we remove them from mummy asap to avoid her accidentally crushing them. :)
