Hi David, this is a wonderful image of this beautiful snake. I've an inordinate fear of snakes, but I can still marvel at their beauty.

Easily the nicest emerald tree boa capture I've ever seen! Was this guy behind glass or did you get inside the enclosure somehow? It's the perfect photo of nature's green glory!

Yes, Laureli, I was able to get behind the glass about 4 inches from her. I was working at Sea World at the time of this capture. ;)

Oh, and I accidentally hit peer award when I really meant absolute masterpiece! Viewbug doesn't allow award edits : (

You just have to love snakes, this hugging beauty even without venom is not a pet. All snakes should be free. This one would be much prised for it's beauty. I love the way they feel, i pick up (with much care) out Tasmanian Tiger Snakes that i find close to my bush block land and take then for a long walk some where else ind let them go.
