WEC297: Florida Invader: Common Boa

Figure 3. The Common Boa's body is marked down the back and sides with tan ovals. Toward the tail, the saddle-like ovals become narrow bands separated by reddish saddles. For obvious reasons, the Common Boa is sometimes also known as the Red-tailed Boa. Credits: Photo from the Wikimedia Project; Illustration by Monica E. McGarrity, University of Florida, 2010
