The Common Tree Snake (Green Tree Snake) is probably the most commonly encountered backyard snake here on the Gold Coast, and throughout South East Queensland. This slender snake is known for its diverse variations in colour, with green, brown, black, golden, blue and grey specimens recorded. This snake primarily feeds on frogs and can be found abundantly in all areas within South East Queensland. Bites are not common, and these snakes do not pose a threat to humans or our pets. After each breeding season pregnant females give birth to between 5 and 15 eggs.
It’s important to realise that many species of snake can vary in colour, pattern and size. This often makes it very hard to make a positive identification of the snake. You should always assume that a snake is highly venomous, keep your family and pets at a safe distance and call a Gold Coast snake catcher.
