As amazing as Amazon Tree Boas are, I believe they should receive more attention. Especially since the handleability of captive bred specimens make the species more enjoyable to keep. My first ATB several years ago was beautiful b.i.t.c.h. She was definitely hands off, strike first, ask questions later-no forget the questions, strike again and again and again. The ATBs I have now will strike but its nothing compared to the nastiness of my first one. I can free handle these anytime I want. They are growing and changing nicely. Also they are problem free feeders and willingly display animals. With adult lengths of six feet, they have enough size to impress most anyone. "Crush" was an orange patternless snake when obtained, but developing some gray spots. The yellow patternless "Orale" is still pretty much patternless. "Specks" is developing some nice rich coloring that my iPhone is incapable of capturing. I bet as an adult, this one will look the most spectacular. "Trick Treat" my Halloween phase, is changing from black to gray. I am excited to continue to watch the changes as they continue to grow. If anyone is interested in arboreals, the specie is a great introduction.
