I found a snake in the wild a few days ago, picked it up and forgot to take some picks, i did a research and found that link.

http://wwwnew.towson.edu/herpetology/reptiles/carphophis amoenus.htm

it looks like that but I think Carphophis amoenus can only be found in the US, though I'm sure that what I saw wasn't a blind snake.

do you guys know any other species with a blunt tail similar to Carphophis amoenus that exists in Asia?

I found a snake that was very similar to what you describe in hong kong. About 4-6" long, black, with a blunt nose and tail.

Not sure what species it was but I was pretty stoked:)

mine was also around 6" but earth brown with dark brown lines running on its back. I think yours was a blind snake - Leptotyphlops humilis...

mine moved in a side-winding pattern which I haven't yet observed on blind snakes.
