Coastal Rosy Boa


Coastal Rosy Boa

Lichanura trivirgata


Fun Facts:


  • We call her Rosy and she is very docile and gentle…a real sweetheart! We use her most of the time when educating children, especially the younger kids.
  •  Rosy is small, but heavy-bodied and has smooth gray scales and is unicolor with no dark stripes.
  • This species is usually active during dawn, dusk, night and early morning. Most of the time, you can see Rosy moving around in the mornings.
  • Unfortunately, the Rosy Boa is extirpated (locally extinct) from the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, but you can still see this species inside our interpretative center.
