Ornate flying snake

I don’t usually see much wildlife between Monday and Friday as I am far too busy with teaching but this week was slightly different. After work one afternoon I was driving to a local shop when Kat spotted a security guard by the side of the road dangling a snake from his animal catching noose. Needless to say I quickly did a U-turn and removed the snake from the noose and offered to take it away and release it which the security man happily accepted. The offending snake was an Ornate flying snake (Chrysopelea ornata) which I released in a more suitable habitat away from the housing complex.
