A beautiful visitor
Yesterday afternoon a beautiful animal visited us: a “Dendrelaphis caudolineatus” (Striped bronzeback snake).
These snakes are exceptionally beautiful. They are rather nervous, they are very aware of what is going on around them and ready to bolt in a second if given the opportunity.
They are fast, tree climbing snakes that are active during the daytime and are frequently found in residential areas. They eat frogs and lizards. They are non venomous and not harmful for humans.
The Striped Bronzeback is found in southern Thailand through the Malaysian Peninsula, and to Singapore, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, and the Philippines.
