Did you know, there are about 140 different species of snakes in Costa Rica, 22 of which are venomous? Thankfully, in the 11 months of living in the tropics, I have yet to come across a 'live' snake. I mean I have seen a dead one and quite a few squashed ones, roadkill, but thankfully not an actual, alive and animated snake!

So guess what I saw the other night while I was out by the pool? 

Yes a bloody, great big snake!!!! A boa!!!! About one and a half metres long!!!!

Needless to say, I was not the photographer! I was safely ensconced inside the house! Ever the brave one, me.
