I may be somewhat bias, considering I have a fascination with snakes in general, but I absolutely loved my Green Tree Python. They have a triangular shaped body because they like to live in trees, as their name entails, which is incredible because it visibly shows how creatures adapt to their environment. They're an earthy, vibrant green that can blend into any of its habitat's backgrounds. Simply put, they are absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately, complementing that beauty, is an aggressive nature, so they are only for show. If you can't resist the temptation of touching your pets, this snake isn't for you. They only eat mice and rats, so they're relatively inexpensive and live for approximately 20 years, so they're well worth the investment. They eat only rats and mice, so they are relatively cheap and are low maintenance. This is one of my favorite creatures, so I give this reptile a 10/10.
