Can reach a length of 1.5m. Adults are bright green while juveniles are bright yellow (retained for about three years). Rests in distinctive looped coils on a branch or vine. Convergent evolution with the Emerald Tree Boa in South America.
In Australia it is only found in the rainforests and vine thickets of the Iron Range National park.
The coolest snake I have ever seen. The only reason I drove up the Cape was to find this snake.
