Description

Latin Name: Corallus caninus Conservation Status: Least Concern
Distribution: South America Average Length: 6 ft
 
Hatchling and juvenile Emerald Tree Boas are coloured in shades of orange, yellow and red. As they mature, the colour turns to a shade of green, normally quite bright. The green colouration is quite different from most other South American snakes. The Emerald Tree Boa lives in the trees, and will hunt for food at night, hanging from the branches.
