I visited one of my local pet shops yesterday to get crix and mealworms for my leopard geckos and as I was looking around the reptile section, I saw that they had 2 amazon tree boas. One was quite a bit larger than the other and they were labeled as "agreesive." I talked to one of the emplyess and they said the larger one was very agressive. My guess is that they were probably wild caught. They were garden phase as far as I could tell. I was particulalrly amazed at the price-$50. If I did get one, I'd get the baby one. Are they a fairly agressive species or could I tame it down over time? Are they a hard to take care of boa? I have'nt been able to find any care sheets on them, but I assume their care is similar to other arboreral boas/pythons. Would I be better off getting them from a breeder? This particular store is pretty good as far as reptiles go. I got my adult leo from them and he is 1 year and a half old now and super-healthy. Any advice is appreciated...thanks!
