Chrysopelea ornata is usually green in color, with black cross-hatching and yellow or gold colored accents. The body, though slender, is far less so than in other tree snakes. It has a flattened head with constricted neck, a blunt nose and large eyes with round pupils.
The lateral, sharp and pronounced keeled condition of the ventrals in association with the normal, not enlarged, vertebral row of scales distinguish this snake. Chrysopelea ornata.The snake's striking looks and capability of gliding make it a popular choice for captivity.
This snake ranges from 11.5 to 130 cm (0.38 to 4.27 ft) long. This species is considered mildly venomous, with few confirmed cases of medically significant envenomation. Chrysopelea species are not included in lists of snakes considered venomous to man.
They tend to be nervous, fast-moving snakes, and attempt to flee if disturbed, but generally do not hesitate to bite if handled.
