I live in the Bay Area, which I guess would be considered Central California.

The only Rubber Boa I've ever found was about 10 or 12 years ago. I don't remember too much about it (because it was before I was really into snakes), but I do remember it was thick, solid brown snake with a stubby tail. Rubber Boas seem to be the only possibility, but the habitat in which it was found was a coastal oak/madrone/bay forest with an elevation of about 130 feet. Weird...

These past few years I have been intentionally looking for Rubber Boas with no luck. I've been looking in seemingly perfect habitats, but still I have found none. I've looked at all times of the day (and night), and gone driving down rural roads in the middle of the night but still no Boas. One thing I think might be wrong is the elevation... I have to drive a long time to get somewhere where the elevation is fairly consistently above 2000 feet. Most of the areas I've been looking in are about 500-1500 feet in elevation.

I'm still looking for them around here, even though I finally broke down and bought a 1.2 trio a couple months ago. Hopefully someday I'll be able to find a wild one...
