Yes and very calm and placid , which I heard is very unusual for this species.

You get different kinds of green tree pythons, some are less prone to bite than others, but overall GTP's do bite.
Nice snake, I've bought one today aswell from a friend(not at the expo), wish that mine was as placid as your's, unfortuneatley I don't have the propper cage requirements so I have to take it to the shop as a display animal. :cry:

What sex is it, If it's a female than we can pair them up 2 years from now :smt017 (I have an male)
as long as you keep quiet, no one will notice that your dumb

Biaks almost always bite and Sarongs, Arus and others bite a lot less. This is not a Baik because the head is much shorter.

Nice snake anyway.

Awesome GTP. Possibly a Sorong, with its blue triangular markings on the blue head stripes..

@ Urucone , no it is a male sorry.
@ Wolf777 , cost me just over 4k

Thanks guys! I hope he stays this placid all the time, really holding thumbs.
I set the cage up yesterday and humidity is up to 80% , still need to get it up to 90% I hear.

Thanks Balls'n all.
I had to make a hard choice to buy this snake or a pastel ball python. It took me about 2 hours to decide lol!
But I finally made my choice and I'm happy with it.
Would have love to have money for both!

We bought ours from a guy in JHB a few months ago, looks the same age and colour (Aru Type) - and ours is also very placid, and at the time he said he had another male he was selling... brothers maybe?

Congrats, he is very good looking!
