Emerald Tree Boa
Emerald tree boas are an exquisite green color. Many have striking white markings occurring along the dorsal midline, although some individuals lack them. Juveniles range from yellow to orange or red.
Arboreal (tree-dwelling) in nature, the tail is strongly prehensile, which means it’s adapted to grasp or hold objects.
Rodents, birds, and small mammals
Emerald tree boas can reach over 6 feet in length.
