dc.description.abstractCorallus batesii is a boid snake native to the Amazon basin. C. batesii was declared a distinct species from its sister species in 2009. Because of this recent taxonomic shift, much of the research on the basic biology and behavior of C. batesii and other Corallus boas has become muddled. This study serves to clarify their biology by analyzing the temporal, foraging, and spatial behavior of juvenile C. batesii in captivity at Zoo Atlanta. Hunting and movement behaviors were primarily nocturnal and resting behaviors were diurnal. Foraging strategy has yet to be analyzed. Qualitatively, site fidelity was observed in individual snakes with respect to both hunting and resting behaviors.
