Jamaican Boa: Chilabothrus subflavus
Distribution and Habitat
In the trees and on the grounds of heavily vegetated areas.
Reaching upwards of 6 ft. in length, the Jamaican boa is golden yellow around their head fading into black as you reach further down the tail.
Though mistakenly thought by natives to be venemous, the Jamaican boa is not only harmless to humans but is in fact beneficial to farmers, as this species preys primarily on small rodents.
