Our latest blog comes to you courtesy of HongKongSnakeID.com co-founder Rob Ferguson's other site www.WildCreaturesHongKong.org! It's a great write up with a fun challenge, enjoy!
by Robert Ferguson:
I for one thing I can never see too many snakes when I am out walking...but I appreciate, nay I have been told many times, that this is not the case for everyone. But, most people want more information about snakes; good vs dangerous, or what to do if bitten etc.
So, with my friend Adam we have put together a website to enable easy snake identification: www.hongkongsnakeid.com
Now to have a bit of fun, here are some snake images, and its up to you to identify them using the information on HongKongSnakeID.com....over to you, and let me know if you get less than 100%.
Hope the site helped you get to 100%!
And here's the site featured in the Hong Kong Free Press article.
For more of Rob's great pictures of these and other snakes check out the galleries in the individual snake write ups of HongKongSnakeID.com or visit his site www.WildCreaturesHongKong.com to see snakes and all other manner of native critters!
