Ready to strike...

By Chaitanya
After rains yesterday night, I had nice time herping today. Found this large sized Banded Kukri snake(Oligodon Arnensis) hiding under a rock. when I picked her up she started biting like crazy(usually they are very calm and well behaved species snakes). Once she was done biting all she did was run all over the place. Eventually after some time I managed to get a shot of the snake coiled up in defensive pose and ready to strike anything in its range.
