Green Vine - part 3

   I don't know why, but i feel like posting more and more pictures of green vine snakes (also you can see the previous posts if u haven't ,click here). Such a beautiful snake, they are in huge numbers in westren ghats of India but sadly there are getting killed in the road accidents. Fragmented forests lead to the crossing of roads, unfortunately they get hit by speeding vehicles.
  Once i went to aagumbe  to visit ARRS(Aagumbe Rainforest Research Station). On the way to the ARRS, i was enjoying the nature walk in the forest, suddenly a green vine appeared on the muddy path and picked it up at that instant. Man! it was furious! Here is the evidence.

  Many times it tried to bite me in defense, so i took a stick near by and picked up the snake on it. I was lucky, i got the moment like this to capture but my point ant shoot camera failed to focus correctly, instead the focus point is little far away from the head.
  I have heard a lot about these snakes eating small birds, but never believed it. Actually i got to see how big they can open their mouth and yeah they can eat a small bird !!

  Read my previous posts to learn more about green vines. Don't miss ARRS if you visit Aagumbe  in future. They give very good information about wildlife, westren ghats and it's biodiversity.
