Eyes of the Vine.. I think this is the only snake species with Horizontal pupils.. <br />
Wanted to shoot this species from front and finally I got the opportunity in Amboli forest where my friend Nitin spotted almost 9 green vine snakes in just 3 hours and he mentioned its still less number!! Can you imagine!!<br />
<br />
This species is often seen feeding on other snakes and are excellent in their camouflage!! They look gorgeous and beautiful!!<br />
