The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Municipal police officers from San Jose captured a boa in the metropolitan center of the capital, specifically 12th Avenue on the south side of the Wholesale Market. The reptile was in a spout.
The director of the Municipal Police of San Jose, Marcelo Solano, said finding these animals in urban areas is more common than people think.
According to Solano, the nearby cemeteries south of the municipality of San José can provide a suitable environment for the survival of this boa because it could feed on rodents.
Other reports in which they have placed these animals correspond to the Otoya district near Simon Bolivar Zoo, and nearby Barrio Luján, by some vacant lots.
“It is not uncommon in the city to find boas. The fire department has recorded incidents where people call because something is in the ceiling. These animals are released to the Simon Bolivar Zoo,” he said.
