from a young age, they are known for their aggressive
temperament and quickness to bite. The are an arboreal
species, meaning that they spend much of their time
in trees. Cook's Tree Boas can be found almost anywhere
there are large bushes or low trees. They are nocturnal,
meaning they are active during the night. Cook's Tree
Boas are easy to care for and very long-lived in captivity,
however, because of their temperament, beginners rarely
keep them. They are very slender and able to distribute
their weight throughout the body, making residing in
and traveling in trees much easier.
