Boa Emerald tree behavior

The Emerald Tree Boa's beautiful green coloration is striking. Their beautiful appearance is making the Emerald Tree Boa a highly desirable part of many snake enthusiast's collections.

The Emerald Tree Boa is strictly arboreal. It prefers to spend all of its time in the trees. If an Emerald Tree Boa is found on the ground, it is usually because there is something wrong with it. Emerald Tree Boas like to coil over tree branches and they rest their heads roughly in the middle of the coils, as is the case with many tree snakes. The Emerald Tree Boa may not be well suited for beginners because of its highly aggressive temperament and its high humidity requirements. They are so aggressive that some enthusiasts call them "Legless Werewolves". In some cases they can be handled, though this requires a lot of work and is an exception rather than a rule. As with all tree boas they have longer teeth to aid in capturing birds in the wild. As a result these can inflict a painful bite. As a rule when keeping these snakes one should stick to "look but don't touch". With the arboreal nature of the Emerald Tree Boa, its habitat should be large, but should lean towards the tall side. It should contain plenty of plant life and branches for the snake to live in. These are generally not the most active snakes, sometimes they will go for weeks and only move and inch or so in position. The average lifespan of the Emerald Tree Boa is 15 to 20 years.
