An Indonesian man has become an internet star after he was filmed using his #bare #hands to #remove a #snake from a busy commuter #train on the island of #Java.
The passenger train travelling between Bogor and the capital Jakarta was brought to halt Tuesday when the #reptile was spotted poking through the #baggage storage compartment of a carriage.
.
Video footage, which quickly went #viral, shows an unidentified man #snatch the snake’s tail before swiftly #smashing it on the floor and #tossing its limp body out the door. #Stunned passengers watch on from a safe distance.
.
Train operator KCI said the reptile is thought to have slithered out from a passenger's bag.
It is not uncommon to see livestock or pets travelling on public transport in rural Indonesia, but passengers are prohibited from taking animals on urban #transport lines.

#Botanist Shawn Lum once saved a tree species from extinction by accident.
The last Chengal Pasir tree in a forest #conservation area in Changi Village was cut down without permission in 2002 by a contractor, which was later heavily fined.
By a stroke of luck, Dr Lum, 54, had collected some seedlings and grown them in his kitchen.
Today, the trees can be found in places such as the Botanic Gardens and Changi Airport.
Whenever Dr Lum goes to the Singapore Zoo, he would say a quick “hi” to the Chengal Pasir growing in its carpark. “They’re like my babies,” said the @naturesocietysingapore president.
.
The longtime #conservationist added another feather to his cap on Tuesday (Nov 21), receiving the President’s Award for the #Environment at the Istana. The award, also given to Anchor Green Primary School and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital this year, is the nation’s highest accolade for individuals, educational institutions and organisations that have made significant contributions towards environmental and water resource #sustainability in #Singapore.

RISING50: To mark #50 years of #bilateral #relations between #Singapore and #Indonesia, #soldiers from the #armies of both countries formed the number “50” at the end of Exercise Safkar Indopura on Monday (Nov 20) afternoon. The exercise, the 29th in the series, is the #flagship #exercise between the two armies.
.
This year's exercise was conducted in Singapore from Nov 13 to 24. According to Singapore's Ministry of Defence, the 12-day exercise involved 470 personnel from both armies. They took part in urban operations training, live-firing, a planning exercise, and the conduct of a combined battalion field exercise.

Following the train# collision last week that was traced to a signaling glitch that struck as a train crossed over from the old signaling system on the East-West Line to a new one on the Tuas West Extension, the Land Transport Authority said train services between Joo Koon and Gul Circle stations will be cut for up to one month to allow for assurance checks.

WATCH: A 500-year-old #painting believed to be by #Leonardo da Vinci sold for close to US$611 million in New York on Wednesday, smashing a new #world #record for the most #expensive work of art #sold at #auction, Christie's said.
.
The stunning price for "Salvator Mundi," which depicts #Jesus #Christ, more than doubled the previous record of US$243.5 million paid for Pablo Picasso's "The Women of Algiers (Version O)" in New York in 2015.
.
Lost for years only to #resurface at a regional US auction in 2005, Christie's says it is one of fewer than 20 Da Vinci paintings generally accepted as being from the Renaissance master's own hand. All the others are held in museum or institutional collections.
.
Dated by Christie's to around 1500, the oil on panel sold after 19 minutes of frenzied bidding in a historic sale, the star lot of the November art season in the US financial capital.

IN PICTURES: The @singaporepoliceforce's protective security command held its #first #mobilisation #exercise on Saturday (Nov 11), where 200 police national servicemen were recalled and deployed to respond to a "key installation" under siege.
.
The national #servicemen were notified of the exercise at 10am and were given four hours to report to the unit's headquarters, where the exercise was conducted.
.
This was unlike conventional reservist stints where the servicemen would be notified up to three months in advance that they may be recalled.
.
"In light of the heightened #security environment, we wanted to ensure that the servicemen can be deployed promptly whenever the country needs them," said the unit's commander Assistant Commissioner Manimaran Pushpanatan.
.
The #specialist #unit, which comprises a third of all police national servicemen, was commissioned in July last year and are trained to protect Singapore's key infrastructure during peacetime and national emergencies.

Jurong Bird Park is now home to two of the world’s #rarest #macaw species—the Spix’s Macaw (photo 1) and the Lear’s Macaw (photo 2).
Both macaws are on a 10-year #loan agreement to mark the golden jubilee of #diplomatic relations between #Brazil and #Singapore.
.
With their arrival, Jurong Bird Park will be the only zoological park in the world where visitors will be able to appreciate all three existing species of the #blue macaw family—including the park’s existing Hyacinth Macaw collection—and learn about the efforts being made to save them from #extinction.
.
The critically #endangered Spix’s Macaw, also known as the Little Blue Macaw, is believed to be #extinct in the wild, with the last confirmed sighting in 2005. It is the same blue macaw which inspired the @riomovies series. There are just over 150 individuals left under human care worldwide.
.
The Lear’s Macaw is listed as #endangered, and has about 1,300 individuals left in the wild. It is distinguishable by its yellow teardrop-shaped marking near its beak.
