For Amazon Tree Boa pairings this year we’ll have two pairs of Amazon Tree Boas. The goal here is to refine two of our lineages.
I have a unique looking red male that has a “granite calico” look to him that I would like to reproduce. I picked up this animal and his last year. For the 2016 season I’ve paired him with his mother with the hope of producing offspring with a similar color and pattern.
The second pairing will include a mottled yellow/orange sire and mottled yellow/brown dam. I had attempted to breed this pair last year however they were unsuccessful. This female is quite large (800 g) and has a tendency intimidate the male. This results in failed copulation attempts. The male is much smaller by comparison (430 g) and has a nice mottled yellow color. I’ll be backing up this pairing with another red male (sire to the calico-granite) should the yellow male not work out.
With a little luck, I hope to have some Amazons available end of summer 2016.
