For Rainer, Jerry, and others in the know:

Now that this is the off season for collecting / observing, I have a couple of questions. Does anyone know what might be considered the longevity record or age of the Rosy Boa either in the wild or for specimens maintained in captivty?

Secondly, how much research has been published on the species? If my memory serves me correctly, I was contacted 2 - 4 years ago by a grad student at San Diego St. U. that was about to do a mtDNA or some other such study on the species and I believe he asked if I could provide him with a a Rubber Boa shed skin for an outgroup. Does anyone know if that study has been completed and published?
