Green Tree Snake?

I don't know the name of this green tree snake yet but googling up the description (green tree snake) shows a different specie. Anyway, it is what it is...... a green tree snake.
When a I was still a young boy, one such specimen dropped down from a tree not a few feet from me. Then I observed it stretching up towards the branches to get up back to the tree. Ever since then I have an uneasy feeling standing under a tree :-D

Didn't know it can be tamed and played with. Below is an encounter with a friend's pet.
The birds appear to tolerate its presence. Normally perched on the fence, table (when his daughter does homework) or anywhere convenient if it's not inside the glass aquarium.

Beautiful fella but still looks skinny to me.
