I was at the zoo last Saturday morning and as is my usual habit I will go pay Elvis, the King Cobra, a visit. This time I found him in a state of stupor with his eye caps almost opaque. Elvis was getting ready to molt. I did my usual round to see what each individual reptile was up to. There were several new snakes - a female Wagler's Pit Viper, a new Mangrove Pit Viper and two Oriental Whip Snakes. It was also my lucky day to find the Green Tree Python facing the glass panel and not tucked away in a corner. It had also just gotten a bath and was glistening.

Though not a native species, it is still a gorgeous specimen to photograph. Having had time to study this snake. I know what were its best features - green scales and eyes.
