My name is Ed Marino.
I have been working with Emerald Tree Boas since 1986.
Driven by my older brother’s passion, I began working
with Northern ETB’s until about 1997, when I purchased
my first Amazon Basin ETB.
In order to gear my collection toward producing the
dream emerald I hand in my mind (a two scale stripe with big,
long crossbars and massive diamonds), I purchased captive
born babies which had the characteristics I was looking
for and raised them to produce the look I was after.
That dream has been produced several times over now.
Take a look inside at some exceptional textbook and
non-textbook basins, and maybe I can help you produce
the dream you have as well.
This site is dedicated to my older brother – my inspiration:
James Marino III (a reptile enthusiast and collector)
Without you helping me to realize that I had your same passion
this site would not exist.
