Colombian Rainbow Boa
Scientific Name:
Epicrates cenchria maurus
Family Name:
Colombian Rainbow Boas are smaller than most Rainbow Boas, typically growing to a length of about 4 or 5 feet, though some may grow as large as 7 feet.
Due to the unusual texture of their scales, Rainbow Boas shimmer with iridescence in daylight, a phenomenon that gave these Boas their colorful name. Colombian Rainbow Boas generally have a light brown or tan base color on which a faint pattern of circles and spots may be seen. These patterns are darker in younger snakes and fade with age.
In the wild, these Rainbow Boas eat birds, lizards, and small mammals.
