The photos were take by an acquaintance here in Corvallis with an older type camera. The coloration in all photos is darker than life and thus the contrast between the dorsal coloration betweeen the two adult female boas is not as vivid as it really is. The contrast of the ventral surface, though darker than normal, demonstrates the constrast between the two specimens.

The female with the burnt-orange dorsal color and orange ventrals is only the second specimen of that morph I have observed. It would be nice to be able to determine the inheritance of that color morph. Some Idaho boas also have orange ventrals but their dorsal coloration is a normal shade of brown similar to most Rubber Boas.
