Green tree python (morelia viridis) These nonvenomous constrictor snakes live on trees in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. They grow up to 200 cm long. They are said to be no dangerous for humans. I would not be too certain... So far, I have not been able to find any information about the meaning of the behaviour shown here.
