Caption: Red-tail boa constrictor (Boa constrictor constrictor) eating a mouse. Image 1 of 3. The snake has coiled its body round the mouse to constrict its breathing and crush its bones. The red-tail boa inhabits Amazon rainforests from Colombia to northern Argentina. It is also a popular species in the pet trade. For a sequence of the snake eating the mouse, see Z780/124 to Z780/126.
