REPTILIAN TUESDAY # 64
Happy Reptilian Tuesday! We’re staying in Southeast Asia today to meet a beautiful snake who lives high in the trees! These guys really identify with the song “It’s Not Easy Being Green”! Grab your backpack and let’s go!
MEET THE GREEN TREE PYTHON!
Diet: Carnivore: small mammals, birds
Length: 6- 7 ¾ ft
Conservation Status: common
- Green Tree Pythons are arboreal (spend most of their time in trees).
- They are bright green.
- Green Tree Pythons are ambush predators.
- They coil around branches with their head hanging down.
- Green tree pythons have prehensile tails that help them hang from branches.
- Green tree python babies are bright yellow.
These snakes are so gorgeous with their bright coloration. You would think they would stand out, but that color helps them camouflage in the rainforests!
