Common Cat eyed snake

Boiga trigonata

Description:

During a night walk we came across few birds, sleeping in bushes and trees, a rat up in tree foraging, a sleeping garden lizard(have seen one common thing in the behavior of these garden lizards, will share that on some other day) and a common cat eyed snake in the bush. The snake was in the bush next to the plant where the garden lizard was sleeping, there was no chance of the snake preying on the lizard as there was huge size difference. The left of the snake had its eye cap still intact, seemed to have shed its skin recently. Will share the image of the eye in the next post. Be it day or night, there is always some activity which will always fascinate you.

Habitat:

small bushes, plants. Active during night.
