COMMON TREE SNAKE

Dendrelaphis punctulata

Description:

I found this poor baby killed with a rock in the National Park. :( Sleek slender body with long, very thin tail. Distinctive ridge extends along outer edges of belly making shed skins easily identifiable. Wide colour ranges from green, olive, brown & black to rare blue-grey on upper body. Belly yellow or creamy, with bright yellow present on throat. Some specimens with blue or grey belly but generally maintain the yellow coloration above the ventral ridges.

This is an incredible pic, Christiane - tragic and confronting without being gory. ANZANG entry in the 'Our Impact' section??
