Sunda Rat Snake

Coelognathus flavolineatus

Description:

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. We took the opportunity to get some pics with it before releasing it to the bushes.
