The Banded Kukri Snake is found in central and Tropical Asia and lives on mature forest floors. it is a rear-fanged snake in which it is often scavenging for whatever it could find according to its dietary list; in short, it is also an opportunist.

This snake is nocturnal and terrestrial, non-venomous;  with sharp rear teeth, it is a specialist in eating birds, lizards, turtles, and snake eggs, which is an important part of its diet..

One of the snakes that David Frohlich showed and shared with me and the rest of the wildlife photographers present during this time. It was short in length and a little bit chubby. I thought it was a dangerous one but it wasn’t, I am just scared of all snakes, a benefit of the doubt I always reserve for all slithering creatures.
