Boa constrictor

Boa constrictor, slither and coil.
Python molurus, continent of oil.
Naja naja, deadly to the touch.
Heterodon nasicus, lying so much.
Nerodia rhombifera, a real bastard to arouse.
Lampropeltis getulus, eating anything that prowls.
Elaphe subocularis, no longer to take.
Thamnophis of any kind, always awake.
Even after all this, yes there could be more,
But after all, no one likes a bore.
