As defined by Reptiles Magazine, the green tree python (Morelia viridis) is one of the most fascinating and colorful snakes. Hobbyists and breeders often refer to it as the “chondro,” based on the snake’s original genus of Chondropython.

And while most of these species are green in color, it turns out that these solid blue pythons are extremely rare, and they are referred to as “High-blue.” This species of python can be found in the islands of Indonesia, New Guinea, and Australia.

This slender snake often appears smaller than it actually is, due to its habit of perching on a branch in a compact, inner-looped posture. Adults average 4 to 5 feet in length but can exceed 6 feet.

Because of its rarity and being popular at the same time, the price for it can spike up which explains its title of being the “most expensive” snake.
