Emerald Tree Boa – Adult Imports
Nice looking recent WC imports from Suriname. We have a few males and females available in the 3-5 ft range.
They look very healthy and we have treated for external parasites. No internal treatments have been administered.
They have the typical appropriate temperament one would expect in an Emerald Tree Boa. They do not like handling and should not be handled unless necessary. I do not typically handle emeralds other than for purposes of moving them for photos, cage cleaning, or medical checkup situations. If you intend to “tame” this animal or ask me questions along that line then I will probably tell you that the animal has already been sold.
Emerald Tree Boas are an advanced species, especially wild caught specimens. I recommend only seasoned keepers with experience acclimating WC Emeralds purchase this snake. They look great and I believe they will thrive under proper conditions but I am offering absolutely no guarantee on these animals whatsoever due to their fragile nature and the apparent unwillingness of many keepers to give these animals the care they need. I highly discourage the use of glass “tank” enclosures of any kind for Emeralds as the range of conditions in which they work well are specific and narrow. I recommend plastic or wooden enclosures with either a radiant heat panel or a heat pad.
It is unfortunate that I have the need for this policy, and if you are concerned about it then I would strongly encourage you to order a captive bred animal instead, whether it is from me or another breeder.
