Amazon Tree Boa

Each snake can vary in coloration and patterning. Amazon tree boas range from black, brown, gray, red, orange, and sometimes even yellow. The patterns can be speckled, banded, or saddled with rhomboid or chevron shapes.

They are typically 5 – 6.5 feet long and are very strong despite their smaller size.
