Sancti Spiritus Trope

Cuba is the center of diversification of the colorful dwarf boas’ genus Tropidophis, harboring 60% of all West Indian species. Many have restricted distribution ranges and are subjected to serious threats like habitat loss and intentional killing. The aim of this project is to provide updated baseline information on the ecology, distribution, and conservation status of the dwarf boas inhabiting the Guamuhaya Massif, central Cuba.
