Now you see me, now you don’t

Mahoora Tented Safari Camp - Udawalawe National Park 

Fun facts
The Bronzeback Tree Snake (Dendrelaphis Tristis) can jump from treetop to treetop just like a monkey (sans the hands of course). But here’s the curious thing. Nobody knows why they do this. Researchers still haven’t figured out if they do it to chase after prey or to get away from a predator or if they are doing it just for a jolly good time.

Did you know?
Count yourself lucky if you happen to see the Bronzeback Tree Snake, because this little guy is usually so well camouflaged that nobody really notices them. This non-venomous snake prefers to spend time up in the trees (as its name suggests) so much so that it even lays its eggs in tree hollows. Usually, it is a very lively snake but like all of us, it does have varying moods. If you do happen to encounter it, stay very still and observe the beauty of this amazing creature. Because the moment you make any sudden movements, it will be gone in a flash.

The Dendrelaphis genus to which this snake belongs to can be found all over from Pakistan to Southern China to the Philippines and even in Australia. In Sri Lanka the best place to observe them would be at an undisturbed site like the Mahoora Campsite in Udawalawe.
