The Corallus are known as Emerald tree boas because of the green coloration on their dorsal sides. In many of them we can find white marks.
The Emerald tree boas can reach more than 2 m in length. Its life expectancy is 15 years on average. When tree boas are born, they can be between 40 and 50 cm long and can weigh 20 to 50 g.
The young are red-brown and at 4 months, they begin to develop their adult green coloration. These snakes don’t lay eggs, they keep them inside them, and the offspring leave alive the mother.
This species usually lives in the trees, but although they are arboreal, they occasionally descend to the ground to sunbathe.They are found in the Amazon basin and we can often find them next to the rivers.
