Caption: Red-tail Boa Constrictor (Boa constrictor constrictor) swallowing a mouse. The Red-tail Boa is distributed from the Amazonian forests of Columbia to northern Argentina. It is very polymorphic and reaches an average size of six and a half to ten feet. The disposition of the red-tail boa and its beautiful colouration has made it a popular species in the pet trade and it is regularly bred in captivity. (4th of a 12 image sequence).
