Green tree pythons have diamond shaped heads with irregular scales and are named for their vibrant green color. These snakes rest coiled up, hanging horizontally on branches.
- They dangle their tails to lure curious prey, and then hold onto the branch with their tail when they strike.
- Green tree pythons prefer tropical rainforests with thick vegetation and high humidity.
- They regulate the incubation temperature by wrapping around their eggs and using muscular shivers to produce heat.
