Painted Bronzeback

Dendrelaphis pictus


long, about 1m (3'), slender, yellow belly, dark brown/black above


forest edge


I spotted this snake perched in a shrub at about waist height, along the road through Baluran national park. A number of cars passed me after I spotted this snake but I pretended that I was photographing something else when they passed, so they wouldn't disturb it. No one in any of the vehicles even noticed the snake. After a few close up shots, the snake wasn't happy with me and began to leave it's perch.

Thanks for the ID Scott. That's cool that the link is from the same place I spotted it.
