    i had a feeling that it wasnt the correct name for it and no i cant get a pic because he lives about 50 miles away from me but it is a brown color with darker pattern and a some what triangular head. i dont know if that helps at all

    Its an Indo Tree Boa, or Indonesian Tree Boa. It isnt in the Tree boa family. Its a candoia carrinata carrinata. They are a neat boa, I may get one after my ATBs.

    Sorta the same care to ATBs really, even though they are diffrent. High humidty 75 to 80%. Temp of 88F.

    What is he feeding it? I was going to get one but changed my mind due to it being wild caught. So its more than likely your brothers is too. If it was eating pinkies, try anoles. It may eat them, that is what the wholeseller who i was going to get one off of used too. They will take live anoles. Its worth a shot.

    Heres a care sheet for them. The Candoia Bible

    Here are some pics of them
