Sneaky Snake


Tongue Flicker

Recommended Posts

Another one of my top favorite snake, Dryophiops philippina. Not as brightly colored as most conventionally kept snake species are and maybe some of you have only heard of this snake until today but i assure you they are a delight to own. A similar looking cousin, Dryophiops rubescens, exists in Thailand.

It moves in a semi-sidewinding movement on the ground and sways its head side to side to mimic a twig blown by the wind.

Always alert and quick to escape

Even as matured adults, they are just as thin as a pencil but grows to almost a meter long. Way thinner than Asian Vinesnakes (Ahaetulla) :D

Happy Thursday!
