Juvenile Green Tree Snake at Jarowair

18th February 2017

Juvenile Green Tree Snake at Jarowair (new sighting)

This tiny Green Tree Snake (Dendrelaphis punctulata) was camouflaging extremely well in a lomandra near the waterhole down the back of Jarowair when Brendon noticed it.  This is the first sighting we have ever had in 11 years at Jarowair of a Green Tree Snake, despite our neighbour having seen one many years ago.  It is interesting to note that in the same week Brendon saw a full size one cross the road and go over the fence in-between our neighbours place and our place, and disappear in the long grass.

Not the clearest photo - but I had to add it as it shows how the Green Tree Snake (Dendrelaphis punctulata) is twirled around the old lomandra flower.
