F. asperrimus is a non-venomous water-snake endemic to Sri Lanka. It is a very agressive snake and will bite or try to if handled.
Farmland, mixed tropical forest.
When I researched this snake I found two latin names, first being Xenochrophis asperrimus, and the most common was Fowlea asperrimus, which one is the correct scientific name?
