The Green Beauty

Species: Green Vine Snake | Location: Amboli, India

The green vine snake is diurnal and mildly venomous. The reptile normally feeds on frogs and lizards using its binocular vision to hunt. They are slow moving, relying on camouflaging as a vine in foliage. The snake expands its body when disturbed to show a black and white scale marking. Also, they may open their mouth in threat display and point their head in the direction of the perceived threat.

About The Photographer

I just love to do wildlife photography. For me it's an is an art with documenting various form of wildlife in their natural habitat. I believe it is one of the most challenging forms of photography, as it requires sound technical skills such as being able to expose correctly.
