Road Kill :( Spent 6 days at a remote location in Brunei, was hoping to see some Snakes, didn&#039;t see any at all despite long walks into the forest, along rivers and water falls during day time and night time :(<br />
<br />
The tribal host that we stayed with, said they don&#039;t like Snakes and will kill them if they come across any!  That was disappointing to hear, especially when they are trying to attracts eco-tourists to their place.<br />

The Banded Krait are usually nocturnal, this one probably came out after some rain during day time.  It was freshly run over by cars on the road, about 4 km from where I was staying at. Banded krait,Brunei,Krait,Snake,fasciatus Click/tap to enlarge Species introCountry intro
