:The Brazilian rainbow is in a completely different genus, though I'm afraid I can't remember what it is right now. It's related to Argentine and Colombian rainbows...

Brazilian Rainbows are in the epicrates family with the other insular slender boas. Brazilian rainbows=epicrates cenchria cenchria
Cuban boas=epicrates angulifer
Peruvian rainbows=epicrates cenchria gaegie
puerto rico boas=epicrates inornatus

This is the largest family of boas. There are many others which I did not list. Hope this helps. Here is a pic of Epicrates angulifer, one of the insular epicrates. They have a blue-green iridescence to their scales. Beautiful snakes, although babies tend to strike at anything that moves within 5 feet of them.
