Boa Coastal Rosy basic information

A moderately sized animal, the Coastal Rosy Boa averages between 22.4 and 35.4 inches, or between 57 and 90 centimeters. They are moderately heavy and have flat, glossy scales. Their heads are characterized by the enlarged chin shield and lack of scales on the top of their heads that, on most snakes, resemble plates. Their small eyes have vertical oval pupils. The skin of the Coastal Rosy Boa is blue-gray in color with three broad stripes going down the back. The stripes are usually brown, orange or reddish-brown. On some animals, the stripes are very close in shade to the background color and the animal appears unicolored. The underside of the Coastal Rosy Boa is cream colored with gray spots. Besides the regular Coastal Boa, there are three other varieties of the Coastal Rosy Boa. These are: the Albino Coastal Rosy Boa, which is entirely white and can reach up to four feet in length; the San Gabriel Mountain Rosy Boa, a rare subspecies with excessive orange markings and a maximum length of 42 inches; and the Central Baja Rosy Boa, whose gray stripes are shaded with orange and yellow. Whatever the subspecies, young Coastal Rosy Boas usually have a lighter background color, making the markings more distinct. Male Coastal Rosy Boas can usually be distinguished from females by the presence of well-developed anal spurs on the male.
