We were delighted (and surprised) to find a rubber boa stretched across our garden path yesterday. Although we have had periods of warm weather, that day was rather cool. He tolerated being photographed at close range, occasionally flicking his black tongue. He either was more interested in being stealthy than inquisitive, or else he was too cold to take action. Eventually he slid into the ivy. Is this too early for it to be out? Or is this species more active than other snakes in cool weather?
