Red Eyes, Long Tongue!
This gorgeous Mountain Slug Snake was constantly on the move when I first saw it, and was a challenge to get good shot with its tongue out and face on. Fortunately, I have seen this snake before and know it is harmless, so decided to spend more time with it to keep trying and managed to get several shots that I was happy with :D
It was seen at a tree just a few meters from the ticketing counter but I saw it at night when everyone has left. The next day I went back to the place in the afternoon and was able to see the snake again, on a tree next to the original tree I saw it. There were many visitors then and there were a few who even stands within a meter of it, and no one noticed this snake! I didn't bother to alert other visitors of the snake as I was more concerned for the snake as usually most people will freaks out upon seeing a snake.
The Mountain Slug Snake has been found only in hill dipterocarp, submontane and montane primary forests of Peninsular Malaysia at elevations of around 1000-2000 metres. It is absent from the lowlands.
