Boa constrictor nebulosa
On beautiful and till now relatively authentic preserved tropical island Dominica
is found a rare form of Boa constrictor, sometimes called single standing endemic
species Boa constrictor nebulosa. Taxonomically was nebulosa defined by Lazell
in year 1964. This subspecies pattern is very distant from other Boa constrictors.
Mainly bronze/brown coloration, darken at tail saddles.
The same as other island subspecies, Boa constrictor nebulosa (as sabogae and
orophias) is smaller form, very vital and partially aggressive. No wonder,
imagine that you are a few days on the world, you are 500 grams of lean meat
and you are living in a jungle, where every predator from larger bird to forest
cat has lack of prey… You will be also uncompromising… But the animals are
beautiful. And it is really wonder, that on Dominica these Boa constrictors
still live! Dominica is surrounded by convenience buggered island Guadaloupe
and Martinique and only with luck still the natural area of Boa constrictors
