Northern Three-lined Boa

Lichanura orcutti
Stejneger, 1889
San Diego Co., California. March 30, 2012.

This hefty female, with a large meal inside her, was found under a piece of plywood. There is much controversy about Lichanura taxonomy; this snake is also referred know as Lichanura trivirgata roseofusca, the coastal rosy boa. ‘Northern Three-lined Boa’ is an awful mouthful; this snake will probably always be a ‘rosy boa’ to me and many others.
