I have just Eaten! Saw this juvenile Sabah Pit Viper - Popeia sabahi on the first night of my trip and was happy to see that it has just eaten something.  Not sure what it could have eaten as the shape of the tummy is kind of weird, maybe 2 bird&#039;s eggs?  <br />
<br />
I visited this particular Viper every day both day time and night time for the next 5 days and also took the opportunity to show it to other guests who were interested to see some Snakes at the Park.  During the several visits, I can see the tummy reducing its size as it slowly digested its meal.        Malaysia,Pit Viper,Popeia sabahi,Sabah,Sabah Pit Viper,Snake,Viper Click/tap to enlarge

  1. It seems like it had some meal, indeed! Posted one year ago
    1. Yes, that is for sure.
      Curious what it ate, and too bad I missed the action! :(
