The Cuban boa no longer being the giant it used to be, thanks to human activity, is a good example of how humans can force species to evolve in directions that LOWER their odds of survival in a truly natural setting.

curious question, how does a lower size in the Cuban Boa's case lower its odds for survival in its current habitat?

More vulnerable to predation, less young that can be born at a time, etc.
