Least Concern

Did you know?


They prefer to stay a few metres above the ground in trees or vegetation. They hunt at night looking for birds, bats, frogs, rodents or lizards.

Fun fact

Their prey are often pushed off the tree branch when they strike, so the snake will gather the body in several of its coils.


They are common in forest regions with high humidity such as the Amazon rainforest. They've also been found in dry areas such as savannas or dry forests.

Amazon tree boas are well known for their highly variable colour and patterns. Their base colour varies from pale tan to black, with yellow and red tinges. The eyes can be yellow, grey, or red and they have a reflective membrane that makes them shine at night. They are highly defensive when provoked, although only the adults pose any serious danger to humans as this species is non-venomous.

Animal zone

Representing where the rainforests meet the reef, the lagoon reflects the diversity of aquatic life and unique habitats found in and around many of the islands and archipelagos in the western Pacific Ocean, from tropical North Queensland to the outer islands of Palau in Micronesia.
