Small A. sauteri I came across on 12/23 - easily the latest in the year I’ve ever come across a snake here in the north. This was the 913th (and no doubt final) snake I came across in 2014![/quote]
I am curious. Where and when did you see all these snakes? In all parts of Taiwan? On roads and trails or deep in the forest? At night or daytime? By accident or by actively looking for them? What types of snakes have you seen most?[/quote]
Almost all of the snakes were seen here in the north - either on my local hill here in Taoyuan, or further into the interior. I come across them frequently while hiking, while biking, and also when I’m “road-cruising” for them at night. During the summer, the snake you will most commonly encounter during the daytime is the Greater Green snake. At night you will most frequently come across Green Tree Vipers, Red-banded Snakes and Habus.
