Today (16th July) is World Snake Day! Here’s a selection of dead snakes I’ve encountered over the years here in Singapore. Most of these were roadkills, while a few were found on the Rail Corridor, back when the tracks were still in place and the trains were in operation along that stretch

Top Row (L-R): Paradise Tree Snake (Chrysopelea paradisi) @ Kranji, Painted Bronzeback (Dendrelaphis pictus) @ Kranji, Oriental Whip Snake (Ahaetulla prasina) @ Sungei Buloh

Middle Row (L-R): Striped Keelback (Xenochrophis vittatus) @ Sungei Buloh, Striped Kukri Snake (Oligodon octolineatus) @ Island Club Road, White-spotted Slug Snake (Pareas margaritophorus) @ Punggol

Bottom Row (L-R): Reticulated Python (Malayopython reticulatus) @ Bukit Merah, Common Wolf Snake (Lycodon capucinus) @ Choa Chu Kang, Equatorial Spitting Cobra (Naja sumatrana) @ Woodlands
