We’re at the Canadian Reptile Breeders Expo at the International Centre for its last day! If you’re in Toronto, drop by and check out some of our enclosures before we close at 5pm. We nearly sold out yesterday, so come early!|
this is a cucumber
o, that is very interesting
Emerald tree boa saying hello.
With the mouth open you can see why they take the prize for the largest fangs of any non-venomous snakes. They need them for holding on to birds in the wild that make up the largest part of their diet. two more things to note are the little circle hole in the mouth, this is actually sort of a second nose, it allows them to breath as they swallow their prey. Also the row of boxlike scales above the mouth and below the eyes are heat pits. Emerald tree boas also have the largest heat pits of any non-venomous snake. Because of their large heat pits, they have a very powerful feeding response and are very difficult to tame down as a human body produces plenty of heat to stimulate their feeding response.
