DublinZoo_Python 001


For next week that’s in it.

Joanne O’Sullivan at Dublin Zoo writes:

Legend suggests that St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, however this weekend Dublin Zoo is welcoming the arrival of this striking green tree python to its Reptile House.The green tree python is a small, slender species of python which prefers to coil over a tree branch rather than live on the ground. Native to the rainforests of New Guinea and northern Australia, green tree pythons are non venomous. Green tree pythons are carnivores and feed on small mammals and occasionally reptiles.
