Title: Emerald Tree Boa
Specie: C. caninus

Description: The colour pattern is simple still beutiful an emerald green with a white zigzag stripes or so-called 'lightning bolts' down the back and a yellow belly. The bright coloration and markings are very distinctive among South American snakes. Juveniles vary in color between various shades of light and dark orange or brick-red before ontogenetic coloration sets in and the animals turn emerald green (after 9–12 months of age). As opposed to popular belief, yellow juveniles (as in the green tree python) do not occur in the emerald tree boa.

It is an amazing animal for observing not only because it is a non-venomous boa species but because it has such marvelous colour pallet.
