My presentation will involve a desription of the life history, ecology
and the adaptations of the snake Boidae. This topic necesitates a
brief discussion of reptiles, snakes and then constrictor snakes.
Next, I will lecture on the safety measures that can be taken when
working in and around Boas and why these measures are important. I
will also discuss physical details that will help us ditinguish
between species that we encounter on our trip.


I am in the process of narrowing down the plethera of information I
have found about these snakes.
