That is quite an unusual looking animal.

I agree. It makes you wonder what else is out there that we just know about yet? We tend to fall into the trap of "we have seen it all already" OR "there are no places left to discover yet"... appears we can still be wrong sometimes

Came across a different picture of it which shows off "Silver" in it's name.

Came across this smaller boa, not long ago, on the Internet.
It appears that their numbers are limited.
It is a very cool boa!
Wish we could have some, in the herp community, for captive breeding. Mostly to increase their numbers but it would, also, be great to keep.
