Sumatran Short-Tailed Python
Sumatran short-tailed pythons (P. curtus) range in color from dusky brown to jet black, with black, gray or silver heads and are not poisonous. Some have orange or yellow heads. Adults grow to 1.5–1.8 m (4.9–5.9 ft) in length and are heavily built. The tail is extremely short relative to the overall length.
Green Pit Viper
The Green Pit Viper (Trimeresurus albolabrisis) is poisonous and very shy so it's hardly ever visible. It is bright green with a distinct red tail, a triangular head shape with a body length of about 80 cm. It has the ability to jump with great force when attacking. Like all vipers it is nocturnal and can easily be avoided by staying away from fields and rocky areas.
Asian Common Toad
Asian toad (Duttaphrynus melanostictus) is also known as black-spectacled toad, common Sunda toad and Javanese toad. MountSalak is a habitat for a variety of Frogs. The most common one is the Asian common toad. The wart patterns of individual toads are unique to each.

The species grows to about 20 cm (8 in) long. Young toads may be seen in large numbers after the rains because the species breeds during the monsoon. Asian common toads also breed in still and slow-flowing rivers and temporary and permanent ponds and pools. Adults are terrestrial and may be found under ground cover such as rocks, leaf-litter and logs. They are often seen feeding at night under street lamps especially in times when winged termites swarm. They have been noted to feed on a wide range of invertebrates includingscorpions.
2-Striped Water Monitor Biawak
The 2-striped water monitor (Varanus salvator) or biawak is a large lizard native to Southeast Asia and has been observed at Vila Botani. Water monitors are one of the most common monitor lizards found on various islands of Indonesia, living in areas close to water.

And are capable of growing 3 meters in length. Maximum weight of Varanus salvator can be over 90 kg, but most are half that size. Their body is muscular with a long, powerful, laterally compressed tail.

The species can survive where other large carnivores cannot, as they are very omnivorous and cold-blooded (hence efficient).
The Reticulated Python
The Reticulated python (Python bivittatus) is one of the five largest species of snakes in the world but is rarely seen. It is native to Southeast Asia. Reticulated pythons grow to 3.7 m (12 ft 2 in) on average, and are dark-colored snakes with many brown blotches bordered in black down the back.
