Do You Know Who I Am?

Way back in September 2009, i was involved in field research with Sabah Museum. On the last day, i was too excited to follow museum staff to see how they set up medium size mammals trap. Along the way, i keep chit chatting with George. He is looking after fish collections at the museum. While talking i notice the movements of greenish thing on the leaves of the small trees on my right side. To be honest i still can't stand snakes. This snake is small and short. It is about 30cm long. And i am scared of it.

So, George catch it with his bare hands. We get the snake and bring it to our friends Pat and Fred. We show the snake to both of them and they not sure what is the species.

When we leave back to our camp and prepare the specimen, they still can't confirm the species. I think i forgot to keep the update from them till today. I am not sure if they find out what species of snake is this. I am no good in snake identification so can't help much.

Till then.
