Mexican Rosy Boa Description
  The Mexican Rosy Boa makes an excellent pet because it is a rather small snake that is generally calm and easy to handle and care for. Mexican Rosy Boas are mostly nocturnal, but are sometimes active at dusk and dawn. They are burrowing or terrestrial boas, but sometimes climb low-lying shrubs. Though they are found in arid air regions, they are usually near where water is available. The Mexican Rosy Boa is relatively small and stout snake. It has small eyes with vertical pupils, which are surrounded by small scales on the head. Males have two small spurs at the base of the tail. The average lifespan of the Mexican Rosy Boa is about 15 years.
