Pits help them track their prey and for them pits are their eyes.. These pits are heat sensitive and help snake seeing a thermal image/view. (Two holes just before eyes showing whitish color are Pits)
A very Beautiful Snake belonging to Viper family.
Let them be alone if you come across any, they will avoid you.. Until and unless you mess with them..
Truely mistaken as Dangerous!!!!!! Trust me..
This was one of the best and unforgettable moments of my Jungle experiences.
