Mangrove snake 001

One of the main attraction of Bintan Resorts‘ award winning mangrove tour is the numerous mangrove snakes (Boiga dendrophila) inside. I have encountered them many times during my surveys, but this is the first time I saw a big (around 3m length) one fully alert during late morning. They are nocturnal animals, and during this time of the day they are usually coiled while enjoying the mangrove breeze. Something might have disrupted this one from its nap. It didn’t seem to be bothered with my presence, though. So I took my time and got a few frames to complete my collection.
