Hi Doby
Emerald Tree Boas are beautiful but highly specialized snakes. They don’t make good pets but are nice display animals. You have to consider the animals welfare too. Just because you can afford to get one doesn’t always mean you should. I’m not trying discouraging you, just trying to let you see another point of view. You should build your experience up with easier species and once you know what you are doing then try these amazing animals. Plenty of very experienced keepers have had these and lost them, they are not easy snakes.

Try what the other people posting on this topic suggested. Tree boas and Green Tree Pythons will go a long way to getting you the experience that you would need to try your hand at these.

Leon the Emerald Tree Boa is Corallus not Chondro ,you have the boa confused with the Green Tree Python.

TonyK is right, sorry my mistake with the chondro comparison.

Why not try amazon tree boas first , beautiful display animals and when you breed with them you are never sure of what you will get out .
They are fantastic snakes .
