Philippines Cobra with a bad New Year's day hangover.
Puerto Galera, Mindoro
Found in leaf litter by Alberth Rojas.
Spotted while trekking up from what is called Iguana falls (about 30 minutes trek) on a narrow path with native bushes on both sides. The weather was sunny and cloudy with short showers in the morning. The snake crossed my path from right to left about a meter in front of me. I did not had the time to get the camera, also the bushes on both sides are thick and low, which blocks any view of the ground. The location on the map is not exact as no GPS was available, to be edited when found correct trail position.
