The sixth release in the Remarkable Reptiles series features the striking Green Tree Python. In the wild it is found in Australia's wet tropics, though the species is a popular pet snake across the country. The green tree python is not poisonous but is a constrictor, which uses pressure to dispatch prey, such as smaller reptiles and mammals.
