Green Tree Snake

Dendrelaphis punctulata


Though these snakes are called green, they are actually slate grey to black on top & yellow beneath. This one was a little over a metre long. They can make cats & dogs very ill, so we locked up our puppy for the afternoon :)


Found in woodlands, wet & dry schlerophyl forests & rain forest. After searching all last week for a snake & spending this morning searching as well, here he was in my own backyard!

Thanks Argy! Yeh he was really quite lumpy. He also had a lot of smaller lumps under his skin, not quite sure what they are, but nearly every tree snake I've seen had them. Couldn't get a shot of those though.

Fantastic Leanne. Some really nice shots there too. Looks like it's had a few meals lately in pic 4 ?.
