                                           This is the Emerald Tree Boa.

                                                         I. Introduction   

      Do you know about the Emerald Tree Boa? It's a fast, non-venomous snake. The boa is my favorite color. Through my journey researching the boa, I discovered lots of cool facts.                                                                         

                                                        II. Relatives

      Pythons and boas are the Emerald Tree Boa's family. Don't find a group of them which are called boidaes. Be careful.

                                                   III. Characteristics 

     The Emerald Tree Boa can grow up to be three to six feet long. It has a green body with white spots and a yellow belly. Does the boa cool.

 

                          The Emerald Tree Boa lives in South America.

 

                                                        IV. Habitats

     Brazil, which is in South America, is where the Emerald Tree Boa lives. It doesn't migrate. Its range is only in South America.

                                                      V. Prey

     The boa eats birds and small rodents that live in the rain forest. It gets its food by slithering around for prey. The prey tries to escape but the boa squeezes and eats its meal.

 

                                                  "Yummy, dinner!" 

                                                     VI. Enemies

     This reptile has two fierce enemies, the Army Ant and the Jaguar. The Army Ant comes, crawls on the snake, and has a feast. The Jaguar jumps and attacks. Good luck to the poor boas.

                                             VII. Defending Myself

     It is hard for the boa to defend itself. There is no chance against the Jaguar. Once the boa sees the ants it starts to slither away. Good luck against the Jaguar. 

                                    The jaguar is an enemy of the boa.

 

                                                   VIII. Life Processes

     Boas reproduce anytime of year. The number of young in a litter is ten to eighteen.They're usually orange with white markings when they are born.They're not born in eggs.

 

                     Isn't that the cutest baby you've ever seen? 

                                          IX. Relationship To Humans

     Thier relationship to humans is bad. They can kill a human. Also they look like vines. Yet they are non-venomous. Just be careful.  

                               X. Rare, Threatended, or Endangered

     Don't be worried about the boa being threatened or endangered. Their population is not a concern but their home, the rain forest, is getting destroyed.

                                            XI. Good Night

     The Emerald Tree Boa sleeps during the day. It hunts at night. This means its nocturnal. Don't sleep in the rain forest un protected without shelter.

                                            XII. Adaptation

     The boa has adapted to South America by just relaxing on branches and moving all around. It keeps warm by moving all around. Also in the rain it finds shelter to protect itself.

                                                 XIII. Habits

     Some habits of this reptile are relaxing and coiling around trees. Also it will slither all around.

                                            XIV. Your Interesting

     Some cool characteristics are it has sensory pits to find prey in the dark. Also it blends in well with its surroundings.

                                                 XV. Conclusion

     In closing, did you gain any information? Be careful on the forest floor and understory. Don't hang on any vines that look like snakes. You never know if it's going to be the Emerald Tree Boa.
