My Male Emerald Tree Boa

Hi All, just wanted to share a photo of my emerald tree boa.

Its still quite young as you can see the orange pigment on its head still.
He is very tame and eats well, I will take a shot where you can see his head properly soon.

Image

Hope you all enjoy the photo.

Absolutely stunning. Im sure this makes a stunning display animal for any lounge.

Thanks guys, he is a little stunner and fierce eater, really happy with this snake! and I am even more happy that he is so calm, never tried to bite me yet never even so much as hissed at me and has a very strong grip for his size!

Sachak do you spray them directly with water or is this a result of the humidity? have you got it in a display cage? pics pics pics please!!

I don't have them anymore unfortunately :(

I never spray them directly, they have very sensitive sensory heat pits and if you spray them directly it shocks there system by giving a sensory overload, what I did was spray from above through the cage mesh if need be but the set up I had was a rainmaker system so I didnt need to really spray much, you can spray them but always spray from above never spray directly into there face.

Hope that helps :)

What an awesome setup, and a really pretty snake. Why did you sell it?

Yea they were unbelivably pretty snakes and very good temperement.

I sold them because I had spent way way way too much money on setting them up, much more than I had anticipated to spend so I sold them to cover my losses financially.
I will get more at some stage but this time I will be prepaired for them and I have come up with a very good setup that should be a self sufficiant setup with very little maintenance.

Setting them up properly is perhaps something to discuss here on the forum.
