Snake Released

On Monday 30, July 2018, we went to the forest at East Gate of Angkor Thom temple to release a snake which we got it from Mr. Oem Koemly who caught it when it got into his house located near Psar Leu, Siem Reap town. Since he did not want to harm the snake and wanted to save it from others who could kill and eat it, he called to CBGA team.

Note: this snake is nonpoisonous, it’s called Oriental rat snake (Ptyas mucosus). It weighs about 2 kilograms with 2 meters long. We would like to thank Mr. Koemly for contacting us about the snake. CBGA is happy to know that more people also care about wildlife.
