The Chondro Python

Have you looked into getting a pet Chondro before? They are quite the gorgeous snake! Maybe you are in the learning stages about snakes in general or this particular breed. If so, below is some information to get you more familiar with the Chondros snake.

The Chondros is more commonly known as a green tree python, or GTP. Their former genus is Chondropython, which is where they get their name “Chondros” from.

The green tree python is typically the color of lime green. The color can vary, though, from light or dark. It’s belly is a cream or light white color. This sometimes leads people to think they are a different species of snake. Occasionally, they may have a blue tint on the belly as well.

The Chondros has a slim body for a snake. Their tale alone is counts for about fourteen percent of their body length. They have a large head that is clearly defined from their neck. They have a large, angular snout. The Chondros has a visible spine and their body is in cross sections of triangles. They are usually between five and six feet in length, but the larger females can grow up to 6.6 feet. Their size is mostly dependent on where they came from and their nutrition.

The Green tree python is naturally arboreal, spending most of their day high in the trees, curled around the branches with its head resting on its own coils. It has a strong tail that helps is to stay in that position for long periods of time. It is a nocturnal hunter and uses its thermo sensory pits, or heat sensors, to track its warm blooded prey. The Chondro has been known to wiggle its tail around to bring curious animals closer before they strike. They then use their huge front teeth to hold on tight to the prey they have caught.

They are a very intriguing snake, and quite beautiful to behold.
