Two Snakes In The Mangroves!

Spotting the Mangrove Pit Viper, Trimeresurus purpureomaculatus, during the kayak trip in the mangroves is quite the regular thing. 

Quite often, this is what I would see...

Today, I had a surprise find in the mangroves!

The Reticulated Python, Python reticulatus!

Such a beautiful creature! 

Used to see one or two baby pythons from time to time some years ago but I really have not seen any pythons in the mangroves for quite a while.

Two different species of snakes on one kayak day certainly make one very happy day!
