Once relatively rare in the pet trade, the Amazon tree boa is becoming increasingly popular among snake enthusiasts and owners. When compared to other boa species, they are much more slim and lightweight and as a result, easier to handle. However, their aggressive disposition can make them a challenging pet, and they should only be owned by those experienced with caring for a large snake species.

The Amazon tree boa is a member of the Corallus genus found throughout South America. Like all boa species, it is non-venomous and instead kills its prey through the use of constriction. They are fairly large, and sometimes grow to be over seven feet long.
Scientific Name: Genus Corallus
Characteristics: The Amazon tree boa is notorious for its aggressive demeanor and short temper. In other words, it’s probably best that you study our hand painted and life-like figurine instead of the real thing!
Size and Color: In the wild, Amazon tree boas can have a wide variety of color patterns, most of which include some combination of tan, brown, grey, black, yellow, red, or orange. This model measures 56 inches long and 2 inches tall, making it a touch shorter than one and a half yard sticks and about as tall as a stick of lip balm.
