5: Meet a Pulau Ubin Green Snake

Ever held a green snake by the tail? You will if you go to Pulau Ubin and keep a sharp lookout for it.

The one I caught 2 days ago was climbing a vine near a roadside fence. It was about 5 feet long. Its tapering body was beautifully leaf green in colour. After a photo shoot and sighs of admiration for the wonder of nature, I released the creature into the wild, so that another nature lover can encounter and behold the beauty of creation.

No, it's not poisonous, I'm told.
