The Cayos Cochinos Boa constrictor (CCB) is an endangered and endemic species of Boa constrictor which inhabits a chain of islands located off the north coast of Honduras. The goal of this research is to develop a habitat model within a geographic information systems (GIS) framework for the CCB on the second largest island in the Cayos Cochinos chain, Cayos Cochinos Menor. A suite of existing geospatial data, including environmental variables such as temperature, humidity, precipitation recorded by a 94 operative temperature models (OTM) across the island, and CCB capture data were prepared for use in a GIS.
