Non-Chelonian reptiles in the markets

Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India : Andaman Is, Indonesia, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Malaysia : Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Viet Nam


This very expensive and extremely venomous snake eating species was relatively sparse in the markets compared to the innumerous kraits, cobras, and 100- step vipers.   Only a handful were seen.

The picture below does not even come close to doing this animal justice in terms of it's size.
