Madagascan Tree Boas are a threatened species native to the island of Madagascar. Adults grow to an average of 6 foot (180cm). They are arboreal and nocturnal by nature, they live in trees feeding on birds and small mammals. They are threatened in their native habitat due to deforestation and habitat destruction. They are protected due to their status as threatened and export of them from the wild is completely illegal. Boas are unusual in snakes as they have live young rather than laying eggs, Sanzinia can have up to 12 live babies!
