Tip of Vine. Shot during Night trail at Matheran Hills, Maharashtra, India.<br />
<br />
So fine like vine, these are very hard to find because of their camouflage.. They get mixed with surrounding greenery so well that I passed(few centimeters from me) by two snakes without noticing them.. Thanks to my friend for sighting this Beauty.. <br />
I wonder how well be the camouflage of &#039;Brown Vine Snake&#039; be.<br />
<br />
btw interesting thing about &#039;Vine Snakes&#039; is they have horizontal Pupils.. :-) <br />
