Thanks for sharing! The Krait is great. And the Kukri is wonderful too. I have come across quite a few O. purpurascens and actually keep one as a pet. The O. fascioalatus looks very similar to O. purpurascens. O.purpurascens exhibits a color pattern dimoprhism: one morph is red and has wide dorsal bands, the other is brown and has narrow dorsal bands. Does O. fasciolatus exhibit similar dimorphism by any chance?

Cool videos :thumb: I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything from Vietnam before. I like your style of footage and the in situ favored aspect. Back when I saw the first part to this, I watched some other vids on your channel... liked the footage of you walking a creek at night and filming some salamanders :thumb: cool stuff. My friend and I were gonna head out to get some night basking footage of organus Last year, but we ended up not making the drive. hopefully this year...

I don’t know anything about Vietnam snakes… So when I saw the red morph, I googled what a normal one looked like to compare it to… And I saw the golden kukri pop up next to it. Is there something that distinguishes the two apart?
