"Boomslang" is Afrikaans for "tree snake", although a more correct
contextual translation would be "that South African tree snake species
which was first named in Afrikans".
Three problems with the name:
- The Boomslang is not particularly small.
- Its' favourite food is Chameleons, not Camels.
- The name has already been taken by a manufacturer of a gamers' mouse.

 That would make Stephen King's "Peruvian boomslang" a very unlikely
beast, since the Peruvians presumably would christen their treesnakes
themselves. The South African government vociferously denies the
existence of the controversial Peruvian Snake-Naming Experts Exchange
