I know it's a terrible pic, but see what you can do with it it. Found on Wind Mt.

Yep. The clincher on rubber boa ID is to look at the tail, which is so blunt it can at first be mistaken for the head at a distance. Very docile snake.

Oh! I thought the tail was in the leaves or in a hole or something. Interesting.

Thanks for the feedback, both of you.

It is in this instance. I'm just sayin' for positive ID you can always look at the tail.
