Scientific Name: 
Boa Constrictor

Ruby is a lovely boa who likes to climb and hang around on trees (and people too). When she is coming up to shed her skin, she sometimes gets a little bit scared because she cant see as much as she normally can (this is because the skin over her eyes becomes all cloudy) and when this happens she sometimes makes a loud hissing noise (that sounds a bit like wave machine) to warn other animals and people to stay away from her.
