By Chaitanya
Striped Keelback(Amphiesma Stolatum) is one of the commonest diurnal snake found in South Asia. The snake is non-venomous and very docile in nature. They feed mainly on frogs, small lizards, fish and mice. During monsoon they many snakes congregate in place.

Nice capture. I think we know this as a Garter snake in the UK?

Thanks for the comment. Actually Garter snakes and Striped Keelbacks are different species all together. Even after isolation of thousands of kilometers the two snakes looks alike and exhibit similar behaviour.
