The Brown Tree (Boiga irregularis) snake is a mildly venomous snake, their venom is difficult to convey into a bite on a human as their fangs are at the rear of their mouth.
The long and slender Brown Tree snake can be up to 2 meters in length. Colorations vary from a lightly patterned brown to yellowish/green or even beige, with ragged-edged, darker cross bands on the back and sides (Eastern Australia). Their head is quite large in relation to their body with a narrow neck and large cat like eyes.
Highly aggressive when threatened they tend to strike at their attacker (you) repeatedly. The brown tree snake is a nocturnal snake.
Mainly dining on birds and eggs, they will also take reptiles, frogs and mammals.
