From last years London Zoo visit, this is a ...well the above!
Other known as the Red-tailed Green Ratsnake (Gonyosoma oxycephalum) is a species of snake found in Southeast Asia.
It is a robust snake with powerful, smooth scales on its belly that is ideal for climbing trees and across branches. It has smaller, smooth scales on its back that is usually bright green or light green and may have black net-like pattern. A gray-colored morph with a yellow head exists in Panay, in the Philippines.
The red-tailed green ratsnake lives and spends its life in the trees and in cavities in trees. It seldom descends to the ground. When the snake is stressed, it may inflate a bag of air in its neck, making it appear larger in size.
In captivity, it has quite the 'attitude' and may strike at or bite an unwary handler. Very unpredictable and may change from time to time but may become tame thru proper handling.
It does appear vulnerable at the moment..

Great capture indeed
Hummmm.. Great pic of those snakes my friend Thanks to share ((5++))
Well, I thought a red tail may be a disadvantage...however they seem to have found a way to hide it.Obviously affectionate or at least tolerant of their own kind.Great capture Rob, I'm assuming this is through glass(?) so double great, for sharpness and clarity...
A Valentine's Day embrace? Nice shot...
Up there scaling a tree!! Great capture Rob.
Fab photo Rob,especially with a plate of glass in the way! and thanks for the background.. very educational!! An amazing looking snake!
I wouldn't want to be the one to 'handle' it until it learned to calmed the 'F' down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent shot,love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent! Nice shot!
Very impressive capture and cool information
Hold the phone, hold the phone,...aren't there two snakes up there, intertwined and sharing the same limb, or does it have eyes on the end of its tail?
Other than that, mate, love the color, composition and patterns in this pic of the beautiful reptile.
A real great pic!!!
On the other hand I´m wondering at the moment whether this will be the new Gordian knot?
