    New dwarf boa found in Ecuadoran Amazon

    QUITO (AFP) – Scientists have discovered a new species of dwarf boa in the Ecuadoran Amazon and named it after an Indigenous activist.

    Up to 20 centimetres long and with skin colouring similar to those of the boa constrictor – the previously unknown snake was named Tropidophis cacuangoae.

    The second part of the name honours early 20th Century Indigenous rights activist Dolores Cacuango, according to Ecuador’s environment ministry.
