unfolding stories through images

The last dance

I was extremely lucky to witness this Chrysopelea in Angkor Wat, Cambodia eating what I think is a Tokay gecko.


It’s called “flying snake” because of its ability to glide making a motion of lateral undulation in the air.

Geckos this size normally fight back, this one wasn’t that lucky.

It lasted 16 minutes. The snake stood still for 2 or 3 minutes and then slowly returned to its cave in the magical temple of Neak Pean, set in a man-made pond (a replica of Lake Anavatapta in the Himalayas) in Angkor, Cambodia.
