Guianan Shield Emeralds

 

This form of emerald tree boa is found throughout the northern portion of South America.  Most of the animals imported into the United States are from Guiana and Surinam.

Here at Signal Herpetoculture we have been working to acquire and produce animals that have greater amounts of white than most average individuals.  Below are some photos and brief reproductive histories of our female breeding stock.  Our male breeding stock is displayed on a separate page.   Please use the link below to view our males.
