Fun Animal Facts
These boids could get as long as 3 feet in length. They are short, heavy-bodied snakes with a blunt head and a small tail. Their body coloring varies from yellow to orange with dull blotches. They are known to have several morphs. They spend a considerable proportion of their time buried in the sand or under rocks to cool themselves on hot days, and to hide from predators. Females give birth to live young of 10 to 20 per litter.Click here to adopt an animal and help support the zoo.
