The man, who is 49 years old, came across the creature while he was going home late last month.

He brought it home in a jar to show it to his family members, who were just as perplexed as he was.
During the time that they waited for authorities to identify the snake, the family kept the two-foot-long serpent in a container that was filled with water and fed it little fish.
"I have never seen a snake that looked like this before. My family and I thought it would be useful to let people find out what it is and research about it."
Yahoo News said that Tu's niece Waraporn Panyasarn, who is 30 years old, made the statement about the furry green snake Thailand.
Ms. Panyasarn took some pictures and videos of the snake and uploaded them on the internet in the hope that someone could assist her in identifying it.
A good number of people on Facebook described the beast as being similar to a dragon, while some speculated that it might be a snake with moss or algaegrowing on its back.
Sam Chatfield, who is the snake species coordinator at Wildlife ARC, an organization that rescues and cares for injured animals, concurred that the critter might be a puff-faced water snake with algae developing on its scales.
The scales are on top of skin and mostly made of keratin. It's like having a layer on top of the skin and when they shed they're shedding the outside of those scales. Next time it sheds it (the algae layer) will come off.
