I live on the north side of Brisbane and found a snake skin in our yard. It's just a small one but not sure of the type. It's not a full skin. It appears the head and part of the upper body are missing. The scales on the back side (near what I believe is the tail) is 6 across. The further...
The march of the toad is reaking havoc as im sure everyone is aware. I was talking to a herpertologist at the museum here and he was saying snakes and lizards are getting demolished in NT at the moment.
So why wouldnt the government be doing more.
I have two ideas.
1. Make the canetoad exempt...
im looking to get my first snake but i cant decide what kind i want. i was looking at things like spotted and pygmy pythons as well as common tree snakes. what are your suggestions? nothing that gets to big. and also im new to this forum :)
A friend emailed this. They filmed it today in their backyard near Byron. It's a .mov file which can be played using Media Player and is about 3.5Mb. The main bit is toward the end of the video. The download is safe. I've placed it on my work server: http://goo.gl/i1NxMz
Hi Herb peoples
Just a question about feeding mice to green tree snakes..
How often should I feed an adult mouse to my adult snake?
Like once every 10 days, or once a week?
Stangely, my snake took to mice with no preperation, going straight from geckos (I got sick of catching them...
9 days in Brisbane and I spend some time in some "wild" places so I've met some interesting guys !
I've visited (very quickly) the Mt Coot-tha botanical garden, a nice experience.

I have a green tree snake and I thought he had a mite but it looks like possible bacteria infection near his head. It is yellow in the outside and grown since yesterday, looks like hard puss. I will try and get a picture. It is Sunday and no vets open. Can someone please please please give me...
Hi guys, so my friends dog got bitten by a red belly on tuesday and the fang marks are 2cm apart. I'm just wondering if anyone would be able to give a rough size of the snake? My friend believes it was over 2m.

Hi I'm new, I just bought a common tree snake Eden and I feel like I've exhausted the search function for CTS but still have questions.
She's quite shy which I understand is normal, and if I wanted a regular handling snake I should have gotten a bredli (still on the cards) but.... I'm not...
And if you do, would you be willing to part with some of their shed skin?
My new common tree snake will only eat pinkie mice if they've been scented with live gecko fragrance (her last owner fed purely live geckos and skinks; she won't even eat fish)... I tried rubbing gecko poo and it doesn't...

My Nanna sent my mother a photograph of a snake she wants ID'd. I wasn't sure so wasn't even going to attempt to give her an ID. I told her it could very well be venomous and to stay away from it - she's terrified of snakes so that shouldn't be a problem. Just had an update...
I've just found a snake skin wedged between brick and weather boards under our main bedroom window. The skin is in two pieces and is just over 1 mtr long.
I've tried to id it from scales using arod website but that search came up empty.
I'm not a snake person and found it quite...
Thismorning I was walking across the lawn and nearly stood on a little green snake. About 2 foot long, bright green with yellowish belly. I've done a little googling and a green tree snake is about the closest I can find. Not agressive. (not from 6 feet away anyways) It cruised...
I was called to a house to remove a coastal carpet python that had entered a guinea pig hutch (the day after the night of the 45 degree day Brisbane had a couple days ago). Upon arriving, the snake was dead and had been for a few hours or more, and without any human interference, I...
Hey sorry in advance to all the people that are going to say this question has already been asked as I m sure it would have been but I m new and just suck at digging up old post (I don't know how to do it as it never seems to work for me even post I have read before I can never seem to find them...
I'm excited, had this captive bred pair since they where tiny. Watched them grow and was lucky enough to see then mating.
not commonly breed so very excited and hopeful to hatch some common tree snakes
So had a friend find this inside an empty house where I had been working the day before . Think they might want to get the large gap under the front doors looked at.pics were taken off his phone.he didnt get to close for another pic as hes not to keen on our slithery friends.forgot to mention...
Most CTS enthusiasts on this site would be aware of Gigantor, my particularly large Common Tree Snake. At ~1.8m long, I've been under the assumption that she may have been the largest CTS in captivity. Certainly, I've never been made aware of a bigger one.
You may have noticed that I used...

Can somebody please list the species of pythons that move around and don't hide during the day.
I have a stimmy who comes out about about 4:30 every afternoon and is tucked up in bed when we come out in the morning.
I would love a snake that is out and about during daylight hours.
I was just reading another thread which got me thinking about how many species of snakes I've spotted in my yard.
On an acreage block in SEQ, I have seen a couple of RBBs pass through.
There was a communal nest of yellow-faced whip snakes under the thicket adjacent to the house.

No - 21 is not my age, IQ nor the number of years I have been on APS. It is, however, the number of days it took to find and remove this snake.

I flew up to NSW last week for some herping around the Hunter Valley with a few mates.
After getting off the plane, we went for a poke around some spots in Newcastle.
First finds were a young Marsh Snake and She-oak Skink.

Hi, I have recently purchased a green tree snake (not python). I had it freighted and although from our conversation the seller seemed genuine, I was told she was gravid. I asked a few questions about her history and being paired up and the responses were very vague. Although I already have two...

I was hanging out the washing this morning when I heard a rustling in the dry leaves behind me. I thought to myself that what ever it was it didn't have legs. I turned around and look and got glimpse of a brown tail in the shade. My first thought was oh no a brown snake. I then moved to see what...
Wow this sudden cold snap in Brisbane has made finding anything decent to look at Herp wise, even the Aussie Pythons at the Australia Zoo have gone into hiding except for 1 amazing looking Water Python and a huge Coastal about 3m, checked out a few likely looking places around Beerwah and...
My neighbours alerted me of a snake in their backyard so I went to help them out, the snake was a green tree snake which I often see that same one every year. the poor guy has some damage done to him which appears to have occurred over 24hrs ago. to me it looks like a rat has had a go at him and...
As curiosity has gotten the better of me I thought I would try to post this question as a bit of fun.
Do you have a story behind "how" you named your snake? I've seen some pretty interesting names and thought it would be interesting to hear the meanings or stories behind the names.
Im sure this thread has been done a million and one times but it always is a fun one. And nothing wrong with living in dream land.
What is your next snake.
Mine is a blue phase tree snake (Second in line with one for sale)

I signed up because im having trouble researching a common green tree snake. If any body could throw any info on them my way that would be awesome. I've researched heaps on them and have nearly finished my vivarium. I've been set on finding one. Im out of options as to where to find one..

So, I picked up a nice big 80cm x 45cm x 80cm terrarium today, and I'm pretty set on putting a Common Tree Snake in it, but I'd like to plant it up.
I'd like a big display like an Elephant Ear (alocasia brisbanensis) however, I know they're poisonous and probably wouldn't be a good choice, I...
Here's a pretty little green tree snake (Dendrelaphis punctulata) having a bask and a browse through back yard in Cairns this afternoon. Kept the dogs locked up til it had enough and wandered off just so it didn't get bothered by them!
I thought I'd make my first post after lurking around here for a little while.
Always been a fan of snakes but only recently became a fellow snake owner earlier this year, along with my brother and his girlfriend.
