|This snake was sitting in a drum on campus., the snake is often mistaken as Saw-scaled viper. This is a mildly venomous snake and when disturbed they coil and strike repeatedly and also vibrate their tails. Commonly known as the Gamma snakes they are good climbers. They are nocturnal in habit but are usually seen during daytime in winters, enjoying the sunshine. When they are disturbed they change their bodies in in S shape and try to attack and bite.|

He looks to be very, very, very long! Yikes! A few less shadows might show off his coloring a little better. Otherwise...good (brave) shot!
