Common names: Garden Tree-Boa, Amazon tree boa.
Corallus hortulanus (Boidae) can be found 1 to 2 m or more above the ground in trees or other vegetation in a wide variety of habitats. This species is common in arboreal regions with high humidity, especially Amazon rainforest.
Corallus hortulanus is well known for its highly variable color and patterns. This boas have small, claw-like remnants of vestigial hindlimbs in the cloacal region. Their base color varies from pale tan to black, with yellowish and reddish tinges. They are marked by a series of blotches or bands that are often broader in the middorsal area. The head has five dark stripes that extend from the eyes. The venter color is also variable, from cream to reddish brown, and either with or without darker markings. The eyes can be yellowish, grayish, or reddish, and they have a reflective membrane that results in eyeshine at night. The tongue is black. Males and females are similar in size and markings.
Corallus hortulanus is a notoriously aggressive species. When approached, it bites and makes an s-coil. When manipulated, it may form into a ball, constrict and rotate the body (Martins & Oliveira 1999). They are solitary and may be active at night and during the day.
So this is one of my latest projects. For this project I was i a group of 4 and together we had to make a contemporary fashion head piece. Our inspiration for this was originally medieval torture devices and we then developed this to make it very modern and futuristic.
In reference to Blu, yes, this is possible. I live by mountains, and when the sun sets, this effect happens a lot.
Bird inspired palettes.
Iguana but a little more psychedelic.
