Boo-Liat’s Kukri Snake Oligodon booliati

Critically Endangered

This vivid red fossorial species of snake is found on leaf litter in lowland forest on the island of Malaysia. The forests of Tioman are not protected and are currently subject to private management.

The island is a well-known tourist destination and development for both residential and tourist areas is both ongoing and expanding, which is degrading and removing this species’ forest habitat at a rate which may result in the complete loss of forest from the island within ten years.

The Boo-Liat’s Kukri Snake is critically endangered on @IUCNredlist in #Malayisa by #palmoil #deforestation. They have no conservation efforts in place. Help save them with a #Boycott4Wildlife
