Blunt-headed tree snakes get their name from their unusually large heads, which make up at least half of their body length!
They are easily identifiable by their colors: white or yellow with black or brown spots across their bodies and tails, and bright orange bands around their tails.
The blunt-headed tree snake is a mildly venomous snake, slender species of South American tree snake. These active climbers can grow up to 4 feet long
The blunt-headed tree snake typically feeds on small vertebrates and lizards, but they have been known to eat birds and rodents.
It prefers rainforests with dense vegetation like trees and shrubs. This species of snake is nocturnal and spends most of its time hiding in foliage during daylight hours.
Most blunt-headed tree snakes have a brown body, which helps them camouflage among branches. But if you catch one in sunlight, you’ll notice that their bellies are white.
It is recommended to keep them in a cage that can be kept at an average temperature of 77 degrees Fahrenheit, with humidity levels ranging between 55 and 75 percent.
No, blunt-headed tree snakes are not venomous/poisonous. They do have fangs, though, which means they can bite and even scare away predators.
