They are found in the South American Amazon basin, from Peru and Bolivia eastward through Brazil and the Guianas, living in tree tops.
Emerald tree boas are called "emerald" because of the exquisite green coloration on their dorsal surfaces. Many populations have striking white markings occurring along the dorsal midline, although some individuals lack them. Other individuals have black coloration on the dorsum. Juveniles range from a brown to red color.
They eat birds, lizards, and small mammals such as mice, opossums, and possibly bats.
