Amazon Tree Boa

Corallus hortulanus


Amazon tree boas are very slender, arboreal, boas that are native to most of South America. Related to the larger Emerald Tree Boa, C. hortulanus are equipped with very long teeth, especially in the front on the top and bottom. This species is very nocturnal and are quite common in the reptile keeping hobby. They come in a very wide array of colors from gray to blood red.


These are commonly found in the rainforests of South America.


Amazons are some of my favorite snakes to keep even though they have a lot of attitude and are very partial to biting.
