    I will try to get one when it co-operates. (have added pictures below) I know the locals say that the species is a Boa.

    Could you tell me about the hunch. Maybe I can see if it is right even if I cant geta decent pic. I do not want to provoke dem to much before I am 100% certain what it is. They are aggressive enough anyway.

    Btw about the rattling. I know that some BP do rattle and so do some redtail boas as well. Far from all do but some do..

    Also I have two of these. Only one seems to rattle.

    Okay Here are some pictures of the belly. They are not great but hopefully they will tell you what you need tp know. The flash make it look lighter in color than it is. This not the same specimen as the earlier picture but it is the same species.

    The belly shots make my hunch wrong. The head almost looked like a Corn Snake. I don't think they are native in youre region, but they could probably survive oif released there.

    I have seen a few really pissed off constrictors rattle their tail, but they are few and far between. Your snake just does not look like a constrictor to me. I could certainly be wrong.

    I'll keep digging.

    Even though you've ruled out rat snakes...they also rattle their tails...

    I have not tried feeding them but that does not mean that they havent caught a gecko or two.

    Maybe the answer lies in the way it feeds. A constrictor will generally constrict live prey.

    Rue. I have not ruled out anything except that single species of rat snake we talked about earlier and pythons, cobras, corals etc ;-)

    Right now I am looking at cat eyed snake (Leptodeira annulata)

    Many colubrids will constrict as well.
