Asian vine snakes

The past few days and nights there have been large numbers of snakes killed on the roads, including cobras, sunbeam snakes, keelbacks, ratsnakes and pythons. One of the most impressive snakes found dead was a large, Asian vine snake (Ahaetulla prasina). Fortunately, not long afterwards I found a live specimen of this snake and although they are quite common in Phuket, I was quite excited and took lots of photos. While driving through a golf course to a beach we also spotted a nice Water monitor, one of only a few we have so far in Phuket.
