Oreocryptophis porphyraceaTwo specimens were found. The first, pulmonologist a female, was found on the grounds of the Pange Camp under a fallen log. The second, a much smaller male, was found on the fringes of the Sanctuary, near the town of Siro also under a fallen log. The colouration of these specimens was truly striking. They are known to feed on warm blooded prey, primarily rodents and some birds.
