I'm convinced that mine is a female.

I also know now to disregard tail comparisons, so useful with Kingsnakes & Ratsnakes. Rosy, Rubber & Sand Boas are just different that way - no comparison.

Mine has very broad, dark stripes. Upper, light stripes are tan, lower body is beige. Belly has dark bars & speckles.

Research from the Internet, and the book, Rosy Boas, Patterns In Time, shows that she most resembles snakes from mid Baja, from San Ignacio on the west to Mulege on the east. (Dark stripes get slimmer by the time you reach Cabo San Lucas.)

She also has considerable scarring on her right side, for over 10 inches, and the extent of the damage suggests other than a single rodent attack. She may be wild-caught.

I'm STILL trying to get decent photos of her scars. If I succeed, I'll post them later.
