Boa Amazon Tree behavior

The Amazon Tree Boa is renowned for its disposition and temperament. In fact, this species is often overlooked due to its nasty behavior. They are very snappy, and will bite, with sharp teeth, if they can. Great care must be taken when handling these snakes. They can move extremely fast when they want to. Unless breeding, it is best not to keep two of these snakes in the same cage, as they may end up killing each other over food. If a baby Tree Boa is raised in captivity with lots of human interaction, it can become a more tolerant snake that will do well when handled. Many individuals in the pet trade are wild caught, and like all wild caught snakes they may be more likely to carry diseases.

Amazon Tree Boas will spend much of their time in an inactive, coiled state at the bottom of their habitat. They should, however, have plenty of plants and branches for climbing. Their habitat should be roughly 20 gallons in volume, and should lean towards a tall and narrow tank. A large water bowl for drinking and soaking should be present as well.

Their cage should also have a wide space to work in. When working in the cage, there should be as much room between you and the snake as possible to avoid bites.The Amazon Tree Boa likes to rest on a bed of vegetation.

Regardless of their temperament, the Amazon Tree Boa is highly desired for its vivid and beautiful coloration.
