Preventing a Road Kill! On the way down to town at the end of the trip, we saw a Sunda Rat Snake - Coelognathus flavolineatus lying in the middle of our lane. Our Driver had to swerve to the opposite lane avoid it and came to a stop about 30 meters ahead. Right behind us was another car and we had to divert it to prevent it from running over this beautiful snake.<br />
We took the opportunity to get some pics with it before releasing it to the bushes. Black copper rat snake,Malaysia,Rat Snake,Sabah,Snake,Sunda Rat Snake,flavolineatus Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro
