We were on our way back from rescues at around 1 am, and in our own area – on Lorong Semangka, we chanced on a snake road kill. It is a sad feeling, whether we see a toad, a snail or a bigger animal, who all take that effort to use a road to cross over for food, water, space or mate – we wouldn’t know why they do this, taking all that risk! This Indo-Chinese Rat Snake (Ptyas korros) was a fully grown adult, and we moved him/her to the grass.

If you see any road kills, please remember to move the carcass (of course please keep your safety first) to the side, to prevent secondary road kills of animals such as birds or lizards who feed on carcasses.
