The temple snake

At Jiwa Damai we are co-sharing the area with a variety of snakes.

This particular one was found sleeping under a plastic cover at the ping pong table.

Locally known as a temple snake it is usually only found in Balinese Temples and is considered a blessing by locals. Isn’t she beautiful?

We are practicing here, at Jiwa Damai a great respect for the snakes. It is us who take away and penetrate their living habitat. This one is somewhat poisonous.
