Green Tree Snake

Dendrelaphis punctulata

Description:

"The common tree snake Dendrelaphis punctulata (also called green tree snake and Australian tree snake) is a slender, large-eyed, non-venomous, diurnal snake of many parts of Australia, especially in the northern and eastern coastal areas, and into Papua New Guinea. "

Notes:

This is the closest I could ever get to a snake other than some occasional rat snakes that visit us at our home. In the zoological park in our city I was able to see many snakes. But unfortunately there are very few snakes where I live. Mainly due to the buildings being constructed so close and lack of enough vegetation for them to hide and be comfortable. Since I had very few encounters with a snake I am terribly afraid of snakes but I love snakes. I hope I will get to catch a snake one day.
