My very first Green Tree Snake (aka Common Tree Snake). I've never seen one before, and I think this is a rather large specimen, upwards of 6 feet in length. It has a sleek and slender body, is beautifully coloured, and a really thin whip-like tail. This species of snake is diurnal (active by day), and non-venomous.
Boondall Wetlands Reserve - http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/environme... Specimen located along a sandy walking track at ground level, in an area of the wetlands treed predominantly with She-oak (casuarina) and Melaleuca species, and various native grasses.
Spotted with my PN buddies Shanna Bignell and Pamela Sai. Thank you both for such a wonderful day :-)
