In 1990, while in the U.S. Army, I was stationed at Camp Casey, near Tongduchon, and I caught this snake near our barracks. It was about 3 feet in length. It appeared to be green with black banding, until it showed it's threat display. It hooded not unlike the hognose snake here in the U.S., but between the scales of about 1/3rd of it's total length, was this very intense red. Very beautiful snake. Although I was handling it, and it never attempted to bite, I didn't take the chance. I took some pics that didn't come out very clear. I could send you a pic if you wish, at your email address. Another time, that same year, I was doing that Aussie rappeling training on Cheju Do (Island in the south), and rescued a trapped snake out of a rain ditch. It was clearly trapped. This snake was only about a foot and a half in length and was all bright lemon yellow, with black eyes. I didn't have a camera.
