Helen Wong shouted "Earthworm!" when she saw the culprit above. It is understandable because the animal is pretty small and it was raining. After a few seconds of time lag, I shouted "Snake!" and Helen jumped three steps back at lightning speed. It took me some time to register the identity of the snake because of the unusual (for this species) pattern on this individual's body. But the characteristic red eyes gave it away. It is a juvenile Shore Pit-viper! Like previous encounters, this snake was crawling on the ground. It was escaping (Yes! Snakes are shy!), and I need a good photograph of it for documentation, so I stopped it by pulling gently at its tail (Not advisable! If I were to be bitten, the fault lies entirely on me). This encounter is on 7 November 2006 (7.15 pm) at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
