Boa constrictor imperator
Large (4-5ft long) heavy bodied snake.
Orange Grove surrounded by tropical forest.
Found this boa (Boa constrictor) inside the chicken coop. I got lucky, it had already made it's way up to the roosting poles. I'm pretty sure a few minutes later and I would have had one or two chickens less. When captured it wrapped it's body around my arm and squeezed tight enough to cut off blood flow. After I removed it, I released it about 2 miles away.
