Yellow-green cat snake

Boiga flaviviridis


On Saturday evening the weather was good with light showers in few parts in Bangalore. We went on a night walk hoping to see something new due to the change in weather. It was almost an hour since we started, we came across some really good subjects. We documented, observed their behaviors for a while and then went ahead. As we moved on searching for more subjects, saw this green snake, resting on a rock wall. It was light green with black markings all over its body about a feet in length. We knew it belonged to genus Boiga but not the exact species. Later after consulting with the experts we found it to be Boiga flaviviridis - A newly discovered (Year 2013)species of cat snake in peninsular India, by Gernot Vogel & S. R. Ganesh.


Dry rocky forests.
