While herping in the Thar Desert, came across this Red Sand Boa (in situ)during the night. Unfortunately, there are many myths surrounding this species in India. From calling it a two-headed snake to considering them a good omen for success in business. They're one of the worst affected species of illegal trade.
Spotted this individual on a sand dune, digging itself into the loose sand.
