Extremely rare golden snake found in Kitakyushu

Kitakyushu12 June (News about Japan) – An extremely rare golden snake has been sighted in Kitakyushu City. The snake is identified as a Takachiho snake, an endangered nocturnal species native to Fukuoka Prefecture and other areas. This specimen is typically brown and is an albino, without pigmentation.

Albino snakes usually cannot blend in in the wild and are more susceptible to predators, making it a miracle that this snake survived to adulthood.

Takaya Uzawa, director of the Kitakyushu Hotaru Museum, said: “When I first saw the statue, my legs were shaking. I couldn’t believe such a creature existed in the world.’

The snake is currently kept at the Kitakyushu Hotaru Museum and is expected to be put on permanent display by the summer holidays.
