The snake

Well, I was out cycling one night at 11pm when I came across this snake. So I jumped off my bike, got the camera out and snapped away, holding the snake by the tail. Not great pics but was more concerned about not getting bitten than about the flash etc....
After I got home I went on the internet and researched the snake, this is what i found out:
It's one of the most poisonous snakes in Taiwan.
It's called a Krait.
24% of bites are fatal
Handling recomendations: DO NOT HANDLE

hmmm maybe I should find a different one to play with!
