Isn't there a locality of ETB that keeps its juvenile coloration into adulthood? I remember hearing about one several years ago, though I'm not sure what happened to them in the hobby. (It may have been an ATB locality.)

Not that ive heard of. I have heard of some being born green and obviously they keep the green. Then theres anaconda phase which is born with darker patches rather than white and it keeps that. Atbs dont really go through a drastic color change like etbs or gtps. They usually just gain more pattern as they age but keep the same main color their whole life.

Re: Emerald tree boa

But there are some morphs of gtp that keep the yellow. I dont think its local specific though.

Re: Emerald tree boa

The blue ones are absolutely amazing or is that the GTPs I'm thinking of?

Gtps. No blue emeralds yet as far as ik. Ive seen some with blue spots or blue tinting so maybe something to work with in the future.

Re: Emerald tree boa

the only problem with finding the blue ones are you have to wait till they're almost adults because of the colour change and by that time they cost a pretty penny

Re: Emerald tree boa

My wife and I used to keep and breed both subspecies of ETBs back in the 2000"s. Now we only have one northern female left.



She is from a 2004 Rico Wilder, Ms Willy breeding.

CB emeralds really arent bad if you work with them. I have been handling my male import as well and hes really been tolerating it. He use to strike at me but has really calmed down. This baby is super sweet and has never struck at me.
