That's another deadly Wagler's Pit Viper up there.This was a dead vine placed near the roof of the temple for the snakes to coil on.They do say that the snakes come there of their own accord. I was wondering what they do for food. The temple is in a fairly busy, built up area, and the local residents certainly won't have these many snakes slithering around in their homes and shops. Does the temple feed them? If so, how can they get this many rodents? Hmmmm. Quite a mystery it was. (Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia, Nov. 2013)
