Ground Boa found in the caves of Ankarana National Park, Madagascar.
amiller, your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
I love snakes, see full force throughout the body, thanks for sharing
Great spotting, amiller! I just wonder if this isn't a Madagascar tree boa (Sanzinia madagascariensis). The pattern on the body and the shape of the head with clear heat-sensitive pits on the lips makes me think it is a Madagascar tree boa.
