Coiled Green Plastic Snake Customers have told us that the best thing they ever found to keep birds and other animals away from their swimming pool is a fake plastic snake. This coiled green toy snake might be just the ticket. Its color is bright, and the built-in coils allow you to wrap the snake around bushes or trees in your yard. Our plastic snake is 40 inches long, although it will not stay stretched out, but will return to a coiled position or wrap nicely around a post or landscaping. Our plastic snake is very flexible and is fairly realistic looking except for the rather bright colors. The head measures half an inch across, and the body is about 5 inches if you measure across the coils as you see it pictured here. The snake's mouth is open, its tongue sticks out almost half an inch, and you can see its four teeth. If I were a bird, I don't think I would take any chances! Please see our other toy realistic snakes as well. This guy may want some friends or just something to eat!
The common tree snake, Dendrelaphis punctulatus, (also called green tree snake and Australian tree snake) is a slender, large-eyed, non-venomous, diurnal snake of many parts of Australia, especially in the northern and eastern coastal areas, and into Papua New Guinea. This common snake is harmless, readily recognised as it is an agile snake with a very slender body and tail. The body colour varies from green to olive-green to black, sometimes even blue, frequently pale yellow on the throat and belly but other pale colours have been noted, blue flecks are present on the flank. Eyes are larger than in most snakes. Found in a variety of habitats ranging from rainforest to woodland to urban areas where it preys on fish, frogs and other small animals. It has a primitive venom apparatus and a mildly toxic venom that is not regarded as dangerous to human beings. Its tiny grooved venom-conducting fangs are positioned to the back of the upper jaw, meaning that it must partially swallow its prey in order to work the fang's toxin.
