Oh that is very cool! I've only seen 1 species of snake in 2 countries, that's all I've got :)

@Ashley - it was nice finding the same species of Snake in 3 different countries - Malaysia, Philippines & Hong Kong :)

Probably this one is a very young juvenile.
This one was found on the same plant with a few baby Phasmids (2 cm size), I tried to take of them together for size reference but photo didn't turn out well :(
Saw total of 4 Snakes this trip, not too bad :D

Yea, and I don't remember the others having as pronounced of a white stripe on the neck either. Cool snakes though!

Yea, a few of them, but colours a bit different.
This one seems to be lighter in colour.
