SINGAPORE- Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday shared a photo of a "beautiful little fellow" he saw while he was at Upper Peirce Reservoir on Sunday evening.
"I actually walked past without seeing it, but my sharp-eyed SOs spotted it. I went right up close to take some photos. My SOs (Security Officers) were very nervous, but the snake did not mind at all!" he wrote.
He ended the post saying: "Maybe I was lucky because it is my third anniversary on FB!" and used the hashtag #justforfun.
He explained that he found out from NParks that the black-headed collar snake, an endangered species, is non-venomous and "seldom encountered because of its shy nature".
Earlier this month, PM Lee contributed a picture of Upper Pierce Reservoir Park to the SG Heart Map project. The SG Heart Map is a collective map of places in Singapore that are meaningful and special to Singaporeans.
