S for Snake This baby Blunt-Headed Slug Eating Snake - Aplopeltura boa was found on the forest floor, it probably fell from the branches when we walked passed it without noticing and the porter behind called out there was a snake on the ground!  We saw several of them during night walks, all babies around 30-40 cm in length and all of them very docile but this one was feisty.  Seen in its defensive posture, it was striking out at us when we tried to get near for closer shots.<br />
