Description: Emerald tree boas are a non-venomous constrictor species of snake. They’re named for their brilliant green coloring, which helps them to blend into the rainforests. Emerald tree boas are ovoviviparous, which means they have eggs that develop inside the mother but born live. Their young are born an orangey red color and turn green over a year.
