The Tree Boa (Corallus enydris) on Trinidad and Tobago

Robert W. Henderson, Hans E.A. Boos


Corallus enydris is a slender, nocturnally active, arboreal boa (known as "Cascabel" or "Cascabel Dormillon" on Trinidad) and one of the most geographically widespread of snakes in the Neotropics (Fig.l). As currently understood, its mainland distribution stretches from southern Costa Rica to southern Brasil just south of the Tropic of Capricorn in the state of Sao Paulo. Its insular distribution includes small islets off the Atlantic and Pacific shores of Panama, Isla Margarita (Venezuela), Trinidad, Tobago, llha Grande (southern Brasil), and in the West Indies, St. Vincent, at least nine of the Grenadine Islands and Grenada.
