    1. Thanks for the ID and the additional info, RMFelix :)
      I did realized it is likely a special find when I saw it, but didn't know for sure it is listed as vulnerable in the IUCN Redl List.

      I tried to take more pictures and/or at better angles but it wasn't possible as it keeps resting on higher branches than me and it was on a tree overhanging a river and I saw it on a makeshift bridge as the original bridge had collapse.
