Malabar rock pitviper

Trimeresurus malabaricus


They are nocturnal and usually inactive in the day, sometimes seen basking on rocks or trees near streams. A typical behaviour found is that they are very active during the monsoon season (you get to see many of them). However, once the monsoon ends, you rarely find a Malabar pit viper.


It inhabits moist forests, both evergreen and deciduous, where it may be found on the ground, on low vegetation, or in shrubs.
