Green Tree Python - Morelia viridis by Normf

Green Tree Python - Morelia viridis by 

A mostly arboreal species with a striking green or yellow color in adults. The color pattern on this species can vary dramatically from locality to locality. Primarily arboreal, these snakes have a particular way of resting in the branches of trees; they loop a coil or two over the branches in a saddle position and place their head in the middle. Found in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia (Queensland along the east coast of the Cape York Peninsula).This “sleeping” juvinile was photographed at Rimba Reptile Park – Ubud Bali
