Tan Ghim Pin was at Pasir Ris Park and documented an eagle bitten in the right eye by a paradise tree snake. However, the eagle was unharmed. The snake managed to slither away and the eagle searched for the snake amongst the bushes nearby but was unable to find it. The eagle then flew up to a tree and left the area.
The picture gallery below documents the sequence of events before and after the bird was bitten by the snake.
