Travancore wolf snake It was in mid December last year, while exploring one of the streams of the western ghats we came across this beautiful snake. It was on my wish list since a while. The drizzle and its quick movements made to difficult to get a decent shot. I enjoyed seeing the beautiful coloration of the snake than photographing it. I wish i get to see again and make some good photographs of this endemic species :) Lycodon travancoricus,Travancore wolf snake,endemic,explore,herping,india,lycodon travancoricus,nikon,non venomous,reptile,snake,western ghats,wolf snake,yellow bands Click/tap to enlarge PromotedSpecies introCountry intro
