Malayan whip snake: camera critters 15

Malayan Whip Snake
green snake at Sungei BulohWhat do you see in this photo?
The question was on my Tuesday post about Sungei Buloh.
Did you spot the green snake?

It looked very much like a vine among the green leaves.
I nearly wanted to touch it  at first glance, it is so slender and bright green, I thought it is a tree snake at Sungei Buloh green snake at Sungei Buloh

I spotted it at Sungei Buloh, just near the Main hide 1A. It is Malayan Whip Snake. It was resting on a small green plant.

This Malayan Whip Snake was one of our best find during a few trips to Sungei Buloh.

I thought I saw a snake! Beautiful and vibrant green! Great shots! I wonder if it's deadly? I'll have to look it up.

I didn't see any snake when I went to the Sg Buloh but recently when I was walking at the Ang Mo Kio Park ( opposite the library) I saw a similar green snakes with red tongue!My younger son who was with the Civil Defence then,told me that the snake was harmless but it does freak me out.

Wow, I had no idea, at first glance I though it was a vine or part of a leaf. That is scary. Fantastic shots, but scary.

You very well could have missed it as it blends in so wonderfully!
He's a very slender one isn't he?
Wonderful shots!
