dc.description.abstract…Based on examination of 737 live wild specimens observed over 12 yr within a population of boas on Big Ambergris Cay, Turks and Caicos Islands, we characterized the striped/spotted CPD and examined potential morphological and spatial correlates of this pattern dimorphism. Contrary to predictions based on studies of similar CPD in colubrid snakes, we found no association between striped or spotted morphs and sex, age, size, or potential morphological correlates….
