See the photo I just posted of a small southern bromeliad boa which we found in our driveway in Dominicalito Puntarenas--what do you think it was doing all the way over here?

Thanks Smith´s Zoo

Beautiful! I'm so jealous ;)

Very Cool Alice, the other day I found one of this by my room in a Hotel in Torrtuguero National Park, Nice because this kind of snake is not so easy to find....

Eso mismo creí cuando la encontré (harsuame)
