Often referred to as The poor mans emerald, (Corallus hortulanus) species makes a great starter snake for the corallus hobbyist. They have a very volatile behavior and are reputed little nippers. They have very highly variable colors and patterns making this one of the most beautiful display species out there.
Start with a 30-gallon tank and grow as the snake grows. Aspen, reptile bedding or reptile turf for substrate. Create shelters with climbing and basking areas. A large bowl of fresh water for drinking and soaking should be provided at all times.
Keep the tank between 76 and 84 during the day and 72 to 82 at night. Use under tank heating pads for a 24-hour heat source. Pre-killed mice and rats are good for the younger snakes.
Snakes can obtain many parasites: HaHa Reptiles always checks for mites and ticks before shipping. We recommend that all new specimens be quarantined so that they can be checked for parasites and disease at the new location.
Amazon Tree Boa's are very picky eaters refusing just about everything offered. They are notorious for their dispositions yet a taming an amazon is not hard to do with repeat handling.
