Caption

Green tree python (Morelia viridis) resting coiled on a branch. This snake is native to New Guinea and nearby islands, where its green colour is effective camouflage amongst the trees. It can grow up to 2 metres in length. The green tree python mainly eats tree-dwelling animals, which it catches and holds with its sharp teeth before crushing them in its muscular coils. It tends to rest for long periods after meals. The green tree python has a prehensile (grasping) tail, allowing it to move with ease amongst the trees.
