Green Bamboo Snake (青 竹 絲 蛇 )

I live until this age, first time encountered such incidence.

We saw this creature today morning around 11.10am when we were about to go out.

We called bomba at 11.15 a.m and being transferred to the unit in charge after telling the operator "Ada ular" .

He told us to keep watching at the snake to see where it moves to. We kept our eyes on this creature until ~11.40 a.m. It moved its posture for a few times and glided up the ceiling at last to hide there before the rescue crew arrived. Seriously under hot sun and such situation, minutes passed by like hours although it's just ~25 minutes.

The snake immediately hid into the gap of the grill when the crew (4 persons) came in group 'looking' at it. There was once the snake missing in sight. Luckily they told me to get the Ridsect. After spraying into the hole/gap, the snake couldn't stand and moved out!

The used the gripper to catch it, but it struggled and fell down to the floor, and moved towards me, who was standing near the car! I screamed like what, jumped like hell and twisted my ankle! :(

He told us this is "Chae Tek See" species.

The end of operation at 11.50am.
