It is a rare individual, snake lover or not, who isn't caught short of breath at the sight of a mature emerald tree boa coiled around a tropical limb. But few snakes are as misunderstood by reptile keepers and breeders alike. The common myth is that they are difficult to keep, of vile temperament, and next-to-impossible to successfully breed in captivity. These theories are quickly dispelled once a few basic husbandry conditions are understood and met.
Ask seven different breeders to share how they have achieved success and you will very likely get seven different answers. Each successful breeder develops and refines his/her methodology by way of trial and error thereby expanding the knowledge base. What follows is a conglomeration of commonly used techniques, all of which have stood the test of time.
The purpose of this article is not to instruct you or tell you how to keep your emerald tree boas (Corallus caninus). It is simply a guide; a guide based on my experiences with these animals. Through my experiences, I have been through all of the ups and downs of emerald keeping. I have brought animals back from the dead and have accidentally killed perfectly healthy specimens. In no way do I consider myself an expert, just an enthusiast.
Welcome to my website. My name is Rolando Burgos. Most people simply know me as Rolo.
Please take the time to wander my site as I am sure you will find some beautiful animals here.
I chose to work exclusively with the Amazon Basin Emerald Tree Boa. I feel that when I can strictly focus my attention on one particular animal, that I can bring out the most in what the Basin has to offer.
My name is Matt Lerer and have been fascinated with reptiles for as long as I can remember. My real introduction to them on a larger scale was in 1989 when I began to search out wholesalers in South Florida in order to see what was available in the trade. I have been captivated by almost every herp imaginable and even to this day seeing new animals is just as exciting as it was years ago.
The emerald tree boa is an arboreal species of boa from South America. This species is an excellent example of convergent evolution with the green tree python. Both species have adapted many of the same characteristics and behaviors to survive in very similar environments on opposite ends of the earth.
"The Boa Kingdom" is a website devoted to Amazon Tree Boas. I've been keeping/breeding Amazon Tree Boas for years, they were the first reptile I had ever successfully bred. Since then, I have kept and bred a wide variety of snake species but have refocused my efforts almost exclusively on Amazon Tree Boas over the past few years.
Welcome to Corallus.com - the website dedicated to sharing information on the eight species of the Corallus genus. This site is neither the first nor last word on Corallus and their husbandry. As always, any information and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated so if you can contribute, shoot me an e-mail and make some changes.
Welcome to our website! Our names are Karen & Craig Clark and we live in sunny South Florida. Craig first saw these beautiful animals and became infatuated with them in 1977. Unfortunately, the demands of his career forced him to give up the collection of animals he had and prevented him from pursuing his infatuation with emeralds. Finally, at Christmas 1998, he became the proud Dad of a small orange neonate we named Little Bit. That little guy sparked our interest even more in Corallus Caninus, commonly known as Emerald Tree Boas, and we decided we wanted to work with these animals and eventually breed them as a hobby.
One of the most important factors involved in correctly keeping a treeboa is replicating the warm, ambient humidity which is native to the treeboas as well as keeping the animals properly hydrated. Often, the two are directly proportional to each other in the sense that if humidity levels are not properly maintained the moisture contained within the treeboas body will escape and not be replenished at the proper rate, thus dehydration, which is an overly common ailment will occur.
The Emerald Tree Boa Organization aka "DGS " is a herptocultural research and husbandry facility specializing in, promoting and distributing information about the South American boid species (Corallus Caninus) aka the Emerald Tree Boa.
