About this book

Nine species comprise the arboreal boid genus Corallus. Combined, they range from Guatemala in northern Central America to southeastern Brazil in South America, and two species occur on islands in the West Indies. Based on extensive fieldwork by the author extending over 25 years, observations from colleagues, and the literature, Natural History of Neotropical Treeboas (Genus Corallus) summarizes, often in great detail, our current knowledge of tree boa habitats, activity, diet, foraging strategies, defensive behaviors, predators, reproduction, population characteristics, and the shared history of humans and tree boas and the impact humans have had on tree boa natural history. In addition to more than 270 photos depicting tree boa colour variation, habitats, predation, and mating, Natural History of Neotropical Treeboas (Genus Corallus) also includes maps, numerous graphs, 26 tables, and more than 400 literature references.

Media reviews

"Robert W. Henderson has conducted research on Neotropical treeboas for nearly 25 years, elucidating aspects of their natural history and monitoring changes in populations over time, emphasizing in particular how these snakes have adjusted in light of human-mediated changes to their habitat, prey base, and predators. In this book, Henderson provides insights into habitat, activity, diet and foraging, predators and defense, and reproduction, with each chapter providing insights, a large percentage of them firsthand, into what we know about these intriguing snakes. I take great pride in seeing a boa before Bob does (it happens rarely), but then he has undoubtedly encountered more treeboas in their natural habitat than anyone."
– Robert Powell
