Green Bine Snake 🐍 Baby
Oxybelis fulgidus, commonly known as the green vine snake or the flatbread snake.
It is bright green dorsally, and yellowish green ventrally and on the upper lip. There is a narrow yellowish-white stripe along each side of the belly and tail.
The green vine snake stays high on trees and looks down to the ground. When a mouse, lizard or nest is found, the snake follows the prey a short distance and smells it carefully. If the snake is content with it, it bites into the head and lifts the prey 20–40 cm (8–15.5 in) from the ground. With this the snake prevents the prey from using its physical strength.
The venom of Oxybelis fulgidus is fast acting on small animals, but has little or no effect on humans. Envenomation of human beings is rare as the rear fangs require the snake to grab and chew to get its venom in, something most people will not stand for. In the rare instance of human envenomation, slight tingling to temporary numbness at the site of the bite is reported.

The smallest snake of this planet!
Indotyphlops braminus is the smallest of all living snakes found on Earth. These snakes are so tiny that people often mistaken them to be earthworm. On one such day while coming home from college I came across few pedestrians standing below my society and looking at something lying on the concrete floor. The moment I saw that shiny body on the dry concrete surface I picked it up and showed them that it is a snake. To convince them showed how the snake pulls out it's tongue and how it's scales (as seen in the 3rd image) are different than an earthworm's annulae (rings). After taking photos for scale counts I released it back to the garden close to it's initial location.

The Ceylon Cat Snake is a nocturnal arboreal snake identified by its triangular head, vertical pupil, black line running from the eye to the angle of mouth, thin slender body and long tail. It is classified as a mildly venomous snake and is found only in Sri Lanka and the Western Ghats in India. Read about our encounter with it below.
It was around 8.15PM we were heading back to the camp. @sandy_aanekatte was driving and he suddenly shouted “Haavu! Haavu!” (“Snake! Snake!”). He avoided running over it, drove past and pulled over a few meters ahead. @the_.wanderer , Sandy & I quickly got out of the car and started looking for the serpent with our phone flash light. Yes, we forgot to carry torches! We looked for it on the road with the dim light and it was nowhere to be found. Darkness-1, Phone Flashlight-0. After a few mins, Sandy found the Cat Snake beautifully camouflaged on a leaf litter just by the side of the road and he quickly moved the snake away from the road, fearing that it would get run over by vehicles.
The Cat Snake immediately started showing off! It gracefully started climbing a small tree. It gripped onto the lower branch with its tail, raised more than half its body length in air to reach the higher branches. It was quite the sight! .
We got back on the road and Sandy spotted another Cat Snake just a few minutes later. This time, the snake wasn’t lucky. It was really hard to find it. Darkness-2, Phone flashlight-0. He was right in the middle of the road and had coiled up on cow dung and superbly camaflouged. We spotted him only when the lights of a speeding vehicle lit up the road and it was all over in a second. If we had our torches, maybe we would've spotted him before :(
When you're on roads which cut through dense vegetation, drive with care. Our fast and careless driving doesn't help the already declining wild animal population!
India: a country stereotyped for being a land of snake charmers. I found this mention even in Sabrina comics. Unlike J K Rowling, the writer has given credits to our motherland.
