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!
