|As I was heading to Arthur's Point at Mahabaleshwar, I found a green twig was moving on the road heading to the stretch of jungle. We had to stop for His Majesty to cross & bestow upon us :)|
The Green vine snake (Ahaetulla nasuta), is a slender green tree snake found in India. This snake is mildly venomous and normally feeds on frogs and lizards. The snake is very variable in its coloration. It is usually green but shows black and white stripes by expanding to display the interscale colours when threatened. The species is often mistakenly believed to be pointed nosed so as to blind its victims and is only snake known to have binocular vision.
