Brown Tree Snake

The brown tree snake is a fairly common snake found nearly always having a nap during the day curled up on a rafter or similar, as this fellow is nocturnal and it’s ever so slightly venomous (nothing to worry about). His main diet is birds but he also knocks off rats and mice. He will grow to nearly 1.8 metres. He is a climbing snake and is nearly always up off the ground. His colours do vary a little as some have no bands and some are very heavily banded and this is how they get the nickname (the night tiger). These guys nearly always have the bright salmon colour belly and a noticeably larger head to the neck, and its eyes are huge. These are a rear fanged snake that has quite a daunting defence posture pulling back into the “S” position ready to strike.
