Oriental vine snake- Ahaetulla prasina

A yellow morph of a beautiful juvenile Oriental Vine snake, which will probably change colour with age (?).

 

These particular genus of snakes are known to have binocular vision and horizontal pupils (see photo). They are ovoviviparous as well, unlike other snakes that lay eggs.

 

Snakes often flick out their forked tongues to "smell", detecting both friend and foe, predator and prey.
