Painted Bronzeback by melvynyeo Painted Bronzeback by melvynyeo
A widespread and common species, the Painted Bronzeback can be found in a variety of habitats including scrub, secondary forest, back-beach habitats as well as parks and gardens. It is active by day, searching for its food prey - mainly lizards and frogs. Nervous in disposition, it will flee swiftly when threatened or disturbed.

The species is identified by its bronze head, black eye-stripe and mask, and black and cream lateral stripes along the length of the body. When threatened it will inflate its body slightly to reveal bluish or turquoise skin underlying the body scales.

The species ranges from southern China, through Indochina and Thailand, to Peninsular Malaysia, the larger islands of Indonesia and the Philippines.
