Long and slender snake with a pointed head and a bronze coloured line running down its back. Its diet includes geckos, birds and occasionally frogs. This harmless snake prefers the tree tops to life on the ground. It is camouflaged (made invisible by means of protective coloring ) among the leaves because of its uniform ruddy brown skin. This active snake is restless and quick, both on the ground as well as in the trees.
Rural area on Mango tree.
