Finding new species these days is usually the business of researchers who work with small things like insects and crustaceans. However, every once in a while researchers uncover big animals. These rarities have hidden away in thick forests, on the top of remote mountains, or deep in the sea –  places far from human eyes. For that reason, it’s remarkable when large new critters are found – and that’s why people are so excited about a newest species of boa in The Bahamas, the Conception Bank Silver Boa (Chilabothrus argentum).
