An online user shared a rare animal sighting video to an online news forum after spotting a blue snake. It turns out, the animal has the largest venom glands of all snakes as well as a unique venom that isn’t very common among the reptiles.
On Wednesday (Oct 20) an online user took to an online news in Singapore forum to share a video of something one doesn’t see every day–a17-second video of a bright blue coral snake slithering over fallen leaves. “Saw this very beautiful, yet dangerous blue coral snake at MacRitchie today,” the post read.
According to Singapore’s official national parks site, the animal, which is native to the country, has a slender blue body with a powder blue stripe on its sides. Its head and tail, on the other hand, are bright red.
In the comments section of the post, many users shared different facts about the animal, especially those related to it being venomous. “I genuinely wonder if Singaporean ambulances have a similar kit of antivenoms to treat snake bites, like most ambulances in Australia,” one netizen wrote.
There were even one or two jokes where commenters said things like “So this is where my colleague went during her leave.”
