Red-Headed Krait

งูสามเหลี่ยมหัวแดง.
Bungarus flaviceps.

Much less known than its popular banded relatives, the Red-Headed Krait is a beautiful serpent that is only rarely seen. Like most Kraits, they seem to inhabit a behaviour that changes drastically depending on the time of day, making one think of Jekyll and Hyde - at day and exposed to light, they will only rarely bite and act very defensive even when harrassed, while at night, they won't shy away from using their extremely potent venom.   


Although having a residence in Thailand where it readily occurs (Trang province), I've never seen this particular Krait in person; unlike other Kraits, they don't do well in captivity and are hard to spot in the wild due to their rarity, their nocturnal, secretive demeanour and preference of living in deep rain forests. It has been a little dream of mine to see and photograph one of these as they are one of my favourites of the Krait genus. One day, hopefully.

This series is very creative, or, perhaps, in this case, krait-ive.

I love this series of paintings - you meld the biological accuracy so beautifully with the SE Asian theme and patterns. Is the background Indonesian, or Indonesian inspired? Or, Thai? I have now paid enough attention to see that the Red-headed Krait is found in Thailand. Brilliant work! Clap

Ffff ja, sieht ja verboten schön aus - der Krait als solcher als auch dein Werk - besonders dein Werk; akzentuierte Schuppen, tanzende Farben, schimmernde Schönheit. 

Unter UV-"Sicht" hauen die sicher nochmal besonders rein 8D
