A lady in Uberaba (state of Minas Gerais, north of us) found this two-meter snake in a tree limb in her back yard. It apparently was running from the cane-field burnings done this time of year.

Relax, Mom, it was rare enough an ocurrence here that it made national news. Doesn’t happen every day.

In Portuguese, the snake is called a jiboia. Don’t remember the name in English. Somebody help me out. [Dictionary says boa constrictor.]
