Amazon Tree Boa – Sleeping Beauty

As I was walking out the door this morning as the very early hour of 5:45am, I quickly check the snakes to make sure everyone was okay and did not need anything. Our Amazon Tree Boa was sleeping perched high in her inclosure and screamed “take my picture”. I titled this horrible cell phone photo “sleeping beauty” because this snake while dull yellow and an unpredictable attitude is just that – a sleeping beauty.

Amazon Tree Boa

The Amazon Tree Boa is a fairly commonly found serpent in the Amazon Basin of South America. Although it can be active during the day, they are primarily nocturnal. Adults are usually less than 6 feet long. They are often found at night in trees where they mostly feed on rodents. They come in multiple patterns and color phases, including red, yellow, brown, or gray.
