Boiga snakes are found in Asia and Australasia, with many species found in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand.
They are arboreal and nocturnal, meaning they live in trees and are active at night.
Boiga snakes are known for their sharp, retractable front claws, which they use to grasp onto branches while climbing.
They are generally non-aggressive and bite only when threatened or handled carelessly.
Some species, such as the brown tree snake (Boiga irregularis), are considered invasive species in certain areas, as they can have a negative impact on native bird populations.
Some species of Boiga are venomous and can cause symptoms such as local pain, swelling, and bleeding, however, they are not considered dangerous to humans
Some species of Boiga are popular in the pet trade because of their attractive coloration, and are known for being hardy and easy to care for.
