"I work at a pet store and we have about a 350 gallon aquarium that I want to put tree snakes in, but I don't know what kinds there are."

First off welcomed to the wonderful world of corallus.

You have much to learn. The best thing to do before purchasing is READ everything you can find about them.
There are several that are "relatively" common to stores.

--Amazon/Cooks Tree boas Prices vary on color from as low as @$50 to as high as @$400 and more sometimes.

--Emerald Tree Boas as low as @$200 for FRESH imports to as high @2500 and more for New Local Types.

--Amazon Basin ETB (less common in stores) from as low a s@$1000 to as high as @$4500 and more for special specemins.

Prices will vary for WC, LTC, CB, CBB, the dealers you get them from, the private breeders who sell them, looks of the animals, genetic lineage of each parents. It's really hard to give an exact figure for each animal.


My first suggestion to you is to read the care sheets at the site below. Paying particular attention to Regurge, Isolation Techniques, and general husbandry requirements for the species. Do this long before you get into them. It can be a costly adventure if one is not well prepared for it. Regurging animals are a nasty common affair that you will most likely run across in your hobby sooner or later and hopefully never.
