Papuan Tree Boa Description
  The Papuan Tree Boa is a beautiful, endangered reptile that is often offered in the pet trade, so it is important to obtain captive bred Papuan Tree Boas to help preserve wild populations. The Papuan Tree Boa is known for their docile temperaments, and come in a wide range of coloration and patterning. Because they are known for their docility, Papuan Tree Boas tend to be easier to tame than many snakes, especially if they are captive born specimens. They are nocturnal and arboreal in the wild, and are not particularly active. Captive Papuan Tree Boas usually will only move from one resting spot to another without any waste of energy or time. Generally it is the ease of taming and the beauty of coloration that makes these snakes desirable and lovely pets. Papuan Tree Boas have rounded, sausage-shaped bodies. Their scales are keeled. The head is triangulated and has an upturned scale at the tip of the nose.
