    Well, I know she´s not arboreal, but when hungry (first post-shed feeding), Coral may eat like one.

    She kept her tail grabbed at the border of the feeding tube and then pulled the mouse up and started swallowing it, like she was hanging from a tree.

    Check it out:


    I gave her some 15-20 minuts and put her back in the terrarium. Here she is resting (you may see the bump)

    Many snakes will anchor themselves with their tails when feeding. I beleive it to be a trait that enables them to have more control when coiling. That way the prey is not able to go running off dragging the snake with them, possibly injuring it, before they can get it subdued.
