There is a “wet” season (May-November) and a “dry” season (December-March). Boas consume most of their meals during the wet season as a result of prey abundance. On the other hand, boas fast during the dry season as food becomes limited.
It is sunny year-round here, with 11.5-12.8 hours of daylight per day throughout the year. December has the shortest days and June has the longest days.
Humidity stays above 70% throughout the year. The humidity increases during the beginning of the wet season and then decreases during the dry season.
Shown below are examples of some of the agricultural habitats that boas can be found in. Boas adapt well to live around people, feeding on rodents and in some cases small livestock or pets.
Shown below are some examples of the forested habitats that boas live in. They prey on a variety of mammals and birds as adults.
