The snake slithered through the undergrowth. Pausing, flickering its tongue and rearing its head, slowly…. Startled, I took a step back. I peered closer at the small snake basking on the forest floor. It had longitudinal reddish orange stripes, with bits of greenish lateral stripes on a black background. Was it a Banded Malayan Coral Snake? Or was it the Striped Kurki Snake.
