Colombian Rainbow Boas (Epicrates cenchria maurus) as with all boas, are non-venomous. Instead, they capture and eat prey by wrapping themselves around their prey and constricting them until they cannot breathe.

The Colombian Rainbow Boa earns its name from its beautiful, rainbow-like scales.

These snakes are nocturnal and are usually the most active during the middle of the night. They are Semi-arboreal, which means they enjoy spending time exploring the ground and being in the trees. They are also good swimmers, often being found in large bodies of water.
