i was leaning toward chekered keelback too.
Yes, it was caught and released with the help of Irulas. Their knowledge of snakes is superb!

Welcome to Project Noah adrika!
What an interesting spot - it looks like this snake has bitten off more than it can chew! Nature can be cruel, but the snake has to eat & this spotting is very educational.

Not sure that posting will last. They prefer shots less gruesome then that.
