The Green Tree Python

Green tree python

Morelia viridis

I photographed this beautiful green tree python at the Queensland Museum in Brisbane. Having an interest in snakes in particular, this python immediately caught my attention as I walked past. I love how the dark background contrasts with the green coloured scales of the python, creating a rather dramatic photo.
