Paradise tree snake nama diberi

Assalamualaikum w.b.t...

haaaa...tudia...mai melawat kami dua kali dah kawan ni....huhu...seremmm
masa musim panas baru-baru ni, yang sampai sekolah tutup tu kalau tak silap, hujan pun idok...baru lah tahu kehadiran ulaq spesis ni banyak rupanya kat area rumah kami...dua kali masuk rumah...

  
ini yang first time, gambar atas ni, ulaq ni dah kena katok dengan pak kebun kami, tak dan saya nak cakap "jangan bunuhhh!!!!" dia dah katok dulu...sian kawan...masa mula2 kejadian...bibik call saya kata dia macam nampak ulak dekat kasut, tapi dia tak berani tengok...


so apa lagi, dari opis duk rushing la balik rumah tngk keadaan macamana sebab risaukan budak2 bam bam sekalian dekat rumah tu duk main kat area luar rumah tu kan so gamba atas ni lah hasilnya...memang tengah berehat...panas agaknya so dia cari tempat yang lebih teduh dan agak sejuk la ni....then panggil la pak kebun...trus dikatuknya...innalillahi...sian kawan....


so gamba yg ni pulak kali kedua teman ni melawat kawasan...kalini dalam rumah, pun dapat call dari bibik...rushing balik then tngk rupa-rupanya duk berehat bawah kerusi...apa lagi pi ambik barang kelengkapan lah jawabnya...kayu dua batang kiri kanan tangan then plastik...ulaq ni tak agressif sangat la kalau tngk keadaan dia bila nampak kita, so pelan2 paksa masuk dalam plastik then saya picit tang kepala...tangkap masuk plastik...hidup la yang kalini ( ulaq kecik tak pa la cekkkk kalau hat besaq mau sedia pestol ka bom tangan kaaa...baling cukop...boom bekecai...hahahaha....adoi)

so ni ada info sikit pasal ulaq ni noh...jangan tak tau, ulaq ni boleh TERBANG dan memanjat DINDING ok!! seremmmm...

PARADISE TREE SNAKE


Paradise tree snake or Paradise flying snake, Chrysopelea paradisi, is a species of snake found in southeastern Asia. It can, like all species of its genus Chrysopelea, glide by stretching the body into a flattened strip using its ribs. It is mostly found in moist forests and can cover a horizontal distance of about 100 metres in a glide from the top of a tree. Slow motion photography shows an undulation of the snake's body in flight while the head remains relatively stable, suggesting controlled flight. They are mildly venomous with rear fangs and also can constrict their prey, which consists of mostly lizards and bats.

Thailand (incl. Phuket), Indonesia (Bangka, Belitung, Java, Mentawai Archipelago, Natuna Archipelago, Nias, Riau Archipelago, Sumatra, We, Borneo, Sulawesi), Brunei Darussalam; India (Andaman Islands), Malaysia (Malaya and East Malaysia); Myanmar (Burma); Philippine Islands (including Sulu Archipelago, Negros Oriental, Panay, Luzon); Singapore; Race celebensis: Indonesia (Sulawesi). Race variabilis: Philippine Islands (including Sulu Archipelago)

Chrysopelea is also known by its common name "flying snake." It climbs using ridge scales along its belly,[7] pushing against rough bark surface of tree trunks, allowing it to move vertically up a tree. Upon reaching the end of a tree's branch, the snake continues moving until its tail dangles from the branch's end. It then makes a J-shape bend,[7] leans forward to select the level of inclination it wishes to use to control its glide path, as well as selecting a desired landing area. Once it decides on a destination, it propels itself by thrusting its body up and away from the tree, sucking in its abdomen and flaring out its ribs to turn its body into a "pseudo concave wing",[8] all the while making a continual serpentine motion of lateral undulation[9] parallel to the ground[10] to stabilise its direction in midair in order to land safely.[11]

The combination of sucking in its stomach and making a motion of lateral undulation in the air makes it possible for the snake to glide in the air, where it also manages to save energy compared to travel on the ground and dodge earth-bound predators.[7] The concave wing that a snake creates in sucking in its stomach flattens its body to up to twice its width from the back of the head to the anal vent, which is close to the end of the snake's tail, causes the cross section of the snake's body to resemble the cross section of a frisbee or flying disc.[10] When a flying disc spins in the air, the designed cross sectional concavity causes increased air pressure under the centre of the disc, causing lift for the disc to fly.[12] A snake continuously moves in lateral undulation to create the same effect of increased air pressure underneath its arched body to glide.[10] Flying snakes are able to glide better thanflying squirrels and other gliding animals, despite the lack of limbs, wings, or any other wing-like projections, gliding through the forest and jungle it inhabits with the distance being as great as 100 m.[10][13] Their destination is mostly predicted by ballistics; however, they can exercise some in-flight attitude control by "slithering" in the air.[1]

Their ability to glide has been an object of interest for physicists and the United States Department of Defense in recent years,[11][14] and studies continue to be made on what other, more subtle, factors contribute to their gliding. According to recent research conducted by the University of Chicago, scientists discovered a correlation between size and gliding ability, in which smaller flying snakes were able to glide longer distances horizontally.[1]

According to research performed by Professor Jake Socha at Virginia Tech, these snakes can change the shape of their body in order to produce aerodynamic forces so they can glide in the air.[15][16] Scientists are hopeful that this research will lead to design robots which can glide in the air from one place to another.
