Green tree python is a sma snake that likes highish temps and lots of humidity. And won't be able to kill you or the dog lol. But they are considered expert care but you can't deny the beauty.

I'm glad you posted this, I looked through your pics here and couldn't see a single snake! Lucky you!
Define expert care? I bought my RO unit to keep Oligancistrus L030. Just one fish, although it has proved useful since purchase.
If i think I can manage maybe I can sneak that in too!
My preference on the dragon is, it eats fish, my bichir dealt with that before it died. Maybe not ethical but don't deny a hunter, it also was a good way of weeding runts from numerous batches of corydoras and platies etc.

Expert in a way that they have pretty specific requirements, heat, humidity etc. also though they aren't able to eat you they can be rather aggressive and deliver a nasty bite. Lastly they are pretty expensive anywhere from $300 to over $10k

Wow! I'm skint brassick and plain flat broke, my last few grand got me a fish house and i didn't pay for labour, well I paid a bottle of whiskey for services rendered and 2 thank you kindly, I did a free kitchen for a free fish house, back scratching at it's very best!
I'm not bothered about venom free bites! I kept polecats and ferrets as a boy and got bitten regularly. They bit to the bone more than once! I had 3+ for many years! we used them to catch rabbits then my friends mum made rabbit pie!

Their care certainly isn't impossible with dedication and research. I bought my first snake in June of 2011 and had a green tree in August. But for about two months straight me and my girlfriend did lots of research in every aspect of care and decided we could handle it. And over the next two years we added five more snakes and a pluthera of fish tanks. I've got to do a better video of my zoo room soon. You defiantly need to do one of the house. Videos are always nicer than pictures IMO

I own a dslr not a video camera, while it can shoot movies it doesn't really, if you get me. For better quality pictures and more explanation follow the link in autograph below, the quality here is not so good. Don't misinterpret me the site is first class just not for pictures.

Maybe I'll try when I'm fully stocked, I did have a you tube page but video quality sucks, 4tanks2day, if you are interested.

I can't wait to get pics of them either! You can be sure the minute I do they will arrive!
P.s. That's what I like about snakes, overcoming that fear, it's adrenaline rush for ages!
