Despite what their name might suggest, the Golden tree snake is not golden but green with black and yellow colored accents. The snake is known by a number of names, including flying tree snake, gold and black tree snake, elegant flying snake, and golden flying snake.
They can be found primarily in Eastern and Western Asia. If they feel threatened, they bite straight away. However, the venom is so mild that it does not have much of an effect on humans. They move quickly and move rather quickly overall. To hunt their prey, they leap from tree to tree and scavenge the ground and trees for food.
