Amphibians such as frogs and toads are cold-blooded animals that metamorphose from a juvenile water-breathing form, to an adult air-breathing form. Amphibians are superficially similar to reptiles. Reptiles such as snakes, lizards, crocodiles are air-breathing whose skin is usually covered in scales.

Reptile (2) - Malaysian Brown Snake (Xenelaphis Hexagonotus)
This is an uncommon forest snake usually hangs around area near streams, probably hunting for fish and frogs. I have seen it only on 2 occasions, one at Upper Pierce forest and another at Riffle Range forest.
