Elegent BronzeBack Snake
A species of lowland rainforests, the beautiful Elegant Bronzeback is almost exclusively arboreal in habits, rarely descending to the ground. It feeds mainly on tree-dwelling geckoes and skinks, and is diurnal.

Its body is long, and extremely slender. Its distinguishing features include the large eye, which is at least half the diameter of the thickness of the head, and larger in the male than in the female. A thick, black stripe extends from the tip of the snout, through the eye, to some distance along the upper flank.

The top of the head is brown, and this continues as a broad, brown stripe which extends along the length of the vertebral line. The  flanks along the anterior half of the body are bright pale green to yellow-green.

The species is easily confused with the Blue Bronzeback Dendrelaphis cyanochloris.

The Elegant Bronzeback occurs in southern Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra, Borneo and Java.

Glomeris Marginata
Glomeris marginata can grow up to 20mm long and 8mm wide and it has twelve apparent plates along the back. Whereas the iuliform millipedes are distinctly cylindrical, the pill millipedes are more or less semi-circular in cross-section. It is this arrangement that allows the animal to roll up into such a tight ball. Pill millipedes live mainly in leaf litter and they play an important part in breaking the material down in some places. In the garden milipede are most likely to be found in the hedge bottom or among the debris at the bottom of an old wall, especially where loose mortar has fallen and increased the lime content of the soil. , the pill millipede is rather more tolerant of dry conditions than it's relatives. Glomeris makes no nest for it's eggs, but each egg is enclosed in a little capsule of excrement.
