    Spotted bush snake (Philothamnus semivariegatus )

    These are very cool snakes. Common but very cool indeed. They are arboreal and green, two things I am a sucker for in snakes. They also have really bright luminous blue skin in between their scales and a bright blue tongue. They feed mainly on geckos and chameleons. Found 2 in my garden this week. Agro when caught and bite like crazy but are totally harmless constrictors. The are very agile and can climb anywhere! i have seen one climb a brick wall!

    They get killed alot by people thinking they are deadly green mambas or boomslang, what a pity.

    Very attractive snake. I can see how they might get mistaken for a Boomslang though.

    Wow that's a beautiful snake! I love the blue on it! (With four GTPs, I'm also a sucker for arboreal and green snakes!) :p

    Great pictures: I'd really love to see one climb a brick wall, that must be really cool!
    Thanks for the pics! :D
