    Boa Constrictor

    Boa constrictors are known for their distinctive markings. They can be tan, green, red, or yellow depending on their habitat; and are patterned with jagged lines, ovals, diamonds, and circles. Though they are good swimmers, they prefer to be dry. They make their homes in hollow logs and abandoned mammal burrows.

    King Snake

    The king snake’s jaws are unhinged, allowing it to swallow prey that is larger than its head. They can eat rattlesnakes due to a tolerance to their venom. Potential prey has the best chance of survival if it stays very still, as the king snake is very near sighted.

    New Guinea Blue-Tongued Skink

    Our New Guinea blue-tongued skink can be found at the England Tour Center. When threatened, it will puff up its body and stick out its long, blue tongue. If the predator is unimpressed, it will hiss and flatten out its body in hopes of appearing to be too much to eat!
