checkered keelback

Description:

Keelbacks are Colubrid snakes of the subfamily Natricinae, so named because their dorsal scales exhibit strong keeling. The family is notable for containing some of the very few colubrid snakes (particularly of the genus Rhabdophis) known to be dangerous to man. These snakes are distributing sea level to 1000m. These snakes can be found in Eastern Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Southern china, South land Asia, & Thailand also.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keel_Back)
