Found only in Central and South America, the rainbow boa (Epicrates cenchria) is another species of snake with numerous subspecies. Able to reach 2 m in length, this snake rests during the day and actively hunts at night for prey, such as small mammals, birds, and lizards. Subspecies of this animal vary in color from brown to orange, but most have iridescent scales, as can be seen pictured above.

I am Ashley, an incredibly introverted environmental enthusiast.
I'm studying to be a marine biologist.
I have a fierce love for all living things, a very broad sense of humor, and I'm likely too passionate for my own good.
Herein you'll find animals (especially creepy-crawlies), nature, science, art, some of my own photography, and occasionally a scattering of personal posts.
I'm an avid reader and music-listener, so suggestions are always welcome (you can check out my last.fm if you're interested).
I source all of my own posts unless it's my content, in which case I tag it "personal."
But that tag is littered with a bunch of other, boring things as well, so peruse with caution.
