Elaphe prasina is a small tree dwelling ratsnake and is mainly diurnal. They have been found at higher and lower elavations and prefer a high humidity level.|
They are mostly found in rainforests so keep in a spacious terrarium with many climbing branches. If the humidity gets too low, they will leave the branches to soak in the water bowl.
Mating is known to occur anytime from September through March. E. prasina lay 5-11 eggs requiring 54-62 days incubation. Females are known to grow larger and heavier than males.
This species has just recently become available and is still quite rare in private collections.
