The Green Tree Snake (Dendrelaphis punctulata) lives in rainforest and dry sclerophyll forest and is often found in tree hollows and rock crevices. Its average length is 1.2m. It is slender and olive green to yellow in colour. When agitated it swells its body to display blue skin between the scales on the neck and fore body. This snake is harmless.
