My morning walk yielded a rare and gorgeous tree snake. The Twin-Barred Tree Snake is a relative of the Paradise Tree Snake. Like the Paradise Tree Snake, it is a flying snake or a glider. This diminutive glider (grows to only 0.6 meters) is also the rarest in the family. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to photograph it. I saw my first twin-barred over a year ago and guess what no camera. Now if only I can find its equally gorgeous cousin, the Paradise Tree Snake, which contrary to what snake books say, is not that common.
