Emerald Tree Boa – CB Baby Female
Captive born from wild parentage. I do not have info on the parents as they were wild and the female was WC while gravid.
She is healthy and feeding on live fuzzy mice. A couple months old now.
She has the typical appropriate temperament one would expect in an Emerald Tree Boa. She does 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. I recommend only seasoned keepers with experience keeping Emeralds purchase this snake. She looks great and I believe she will thrive under proper conditions but I am offering absolutely no guarantee on this animal whatsoever due to her 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 encourage the use of plastic or wooden enclosures with either a radiant heat panel or a heat pad. A 6-12qt rack system works great for babies as well.
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 from someone else who is more willing to risk their animals’ health with inexperienced buyers.
