CHRYSOPELEA ORNATA, GOLDEN TREE SNAKE
Secrets of flying snakes revealed

Human habitats

Chrysopelea ornata is a common snake and has adapted well to human habitats. In southern parts of Thailand, they are reported to hide in the thatch of the roofing material inside bungalows to prey on geckos and mice during the night. In these areas, one can almost be certain to be relatively close to a C. ornata most anywhere, perhaps hiding in the crown of the nearby coconut palm, under the roots of a tree, or even curled up in a potted plant.

When hunting and pursuing fleeing prey, they have been reported to drop down out of the crown of coconut palms.

Snakes are often indiscriminately killed, as many locals incorrectly assume all snakes are venomous. C. ornata is sometimes cooked for food.

Family: Colubridae
