Family : COLUBRIDAE
Species: Chrysopelea ornata ornatissima
Maximum Size : 1.5 metres

A handsome species, the Golden Tree Snake can be found in various habitats including secondary forests, plantations, agricultural areas and rural gardens. Like the Paradise Tree Snake, this snake is able to glide through the air.

Despite the name, the attractive patterning is actually green or greenish-yellow on a black background. It preys on mice, lizards, and other snakes.

This sub-species ranges from Burma, Thailand, Indochina and southern China to northern Peninsuar Malaysia. It is common in the Phang-nga / Krabi area of Southern Thailand.
