The water snake that changed colour

Category : pub

Enhydris gyii, a new species of water snake described in 2005 by John Murphy, Harold Voris and Mark Auliya has made popular news through a new release by the WWF. See: "Snake displays changing colours." BBC News, 26 Jun 2006. See also what blogs are saying.

During his field work in Indonesia, Mark noted that "when placed in a dark bucket for a period of time the snake "...turned almost white.""

The paper, published in Volume 53(2) of the Raffles Bulletin of Zoology, is available for download on our server: Murphy, J. C., H. K. Voris & M. Auliya, 2005. A new species of Enhydris (Serpentes: Colubridae: Homalopsinae) from the Kapuas river system, West Kalimantan, Indonesia. Raffles Bulletin of Zoology, 53(2): 271-275. or click the image below.
