Anonymous said: Did you see that snake that's friends with a frog? Apparently they were raised together and now they are buddies c:
Grown in captivity together, the pair display no signs of aggression or fear, comfortable with their encounters high up in the leafy branches.
"I was worried the python may swallow this beautiful frog," said Fahmi Bhs, the 39-year-old photo enthusiast from Jakarta. "But then a keeper told me that this particular snake doesn’t eat frogs at all and it did seem almost undisturbed by its presence. The python occasionally sniffed around the frog but then it just let the creature do whatever he needed to do."
The frog’s behaviour was all the more remarkable as rodents, reptiles and other small living things tend to make up the diet of the green tree python.
This is really cute!!!
Everyone give a big welcome to Peridot, my new four year old Aru Green Tree Python!
It’s kind of funny because when the vendor was taking him out to bag him, they used a snake hook and were very ginger like they were afraid he’d bite but as far as I can tell, this snake ain’t got a mean bone in his body. Very inquisitive and doesn’t seem head shy in the least.
This is the clearest shot I could get of him right now but whatever, I’ll take more of him once he gets settled on a perch.
