Joe Ong spotted a Cantor's Water Snake (Cantoria violacea) on the mudflat in Pasir Ris Park Mangrove Swamp on 19 August 2006, 10pm. The scale pattern of this individual is slightly different from that of the other snake I found on 4 December 2005. The golden rings of the former are not present throughout the whole body and tail as in the latter. Chan Kwok Wai captured wonderful close-up shots of this beautiful snake.
