This beautiful little reptile was trying to evade our cameras while slithering in between the leaf litters and twigs.
What is this species?
I don't know - yet. After having checked my new book, "A Field Guide to the Reptiles of South-East Asia" by Indraneil Das, I can closely match this species to be a keelback snake belonging to the subfamily of Natricidae, however, I am not sure of its genus. Or this snake may be a different family. This field guide is colourfully illustrated and was published in 2010.
Location found: Lubuk Semilang Forest, Langkawi
Forest type: :Lowland Rainforest (less than 200m asl)
Length (TL): Between 70-80cm (estimation only)
Can anyone please help to confirm this species of snake? Thank you.... pppsssssttt...
