We were hiking out of the Namtok Samlan national Park and we were paying attention to where we were going. When you are in a park, you better be paying attention or you might regret that you have entered the animal kingdom. There are so many ways that you can get killed or maimed by an animal regardless of its size. We also listened to every sound we heard; the cracking of branches blown by the wind, the sounds of the birds if they are in panic, the sounds of the dried leaves crumbling under our shoes. There must be a complete attention to everything and having somebody with you is another pair of eyes and ears to pay attention together.
We found this small snake circling its body on a branch extended on our trail. If not seen it could have strike us even though it is yet a baby snake; but when we have found it, it became a major subject for awhile until it slithered away back into the thicket. Snakes can be dangerous.
Status: I am not sure if this snake is venomous, but if not, when bitten it can also lead to infection.
