Green Tree Pythons are not poisonous, they are constrictors, meaning they use constrictive pressure to dispatch their prey. They are well known to bite when someone or something provokes them. They can become easily agitated and very protective.  Green Tree Pythons live in areas where most people will never get a chance to see one up close, New Guinea, Indonesia, and the Cape York Peninsula in Australia are the main locations for this species. Its figure makes the Green Tree Python special! A relatively slim body and a long tail characterize it. As you can see the head is large and clearly defined from the neck with a distinctive large and angular snout. The body is triangular in cross section with a visible spine. The species usually reaches a total length of 150–180 cm, but large females may reach 200 cm! Green Tree Pythons have a particular way of resting in the branches of trees, they loop a coil or two over the branches in a saddle position and place their head in the middle as shown on our design for the coin.
