GREEN TREE PYTHON

MORELIA VIRIDIS

The Australian green tree python is my favourite species of snake in Australia. Those in Australia hatch only yellow, whereas green tree pythons in New Guinea can hatch both red/maroon and yellow. However, in my opinion the bright yellow of our Australian green tree pythons is the most eye-catching.
