I had a rubber boa for a pet once. I couldn't get it to eat anything for 3 weeks, so I returned it to where it was found. Very cool snakes.Rubber boa- one of the cooler snakes in North America (IMHO). They live at higher latitudes than any other boa, and live primarily on baby rodents by venturing down into burrows (you can see bits of the clayey soil on it's face). This one (and two others) scared my sister on Thursday, and were still in pretty much the same place today.

Meanwhile on the east side of the state I have only seen two horned lizards this year. Lucky man Harvey!This has been the summer of horned lizards for me. I have already found a dozen of them, and some years I don't see any. Four different ones from a walk on Monday, all were above 9000' in elevation.
