I thought so too ornithoptera80, however I checked Mark Ridgways suggestion and it's identical to C. volupe. Thanks for the help with the right id!

There's a lot of vipers in Sri Lanka, I hope to spot some of them once the curfews are lifted, but in general I'm dissapointed in how little knowledge the indigenous people have about nature. The pic is coming, but my family tried to kill a non-venomous "garter-snake", because they believed it was a viper, not ok anyway in my view, but I'm afraid that the decline of species we see today is purely because of the lack of knowledge of the serpent order and any order or genus. I'm also suspecting that the attempt to kill or catch species like this is also the main cause of bites and deaths in the world. As many snakes just flee from potential danger and does not attack unless threathened. After I saved the snake it didn't try to bite me even once, makes me a bit sad that totally non-aggressive animals get the death penalty because they belong to an order that is filled with superstition and disgust. Btw I don't jump on any snake I see, I noticed it had no venom-sacks and did some research before I picked it up. But I have made myself clear that no snake is to be harmed and have explained why they are important for the eco-system. Sorry...long comment...

Is it a leaf-grasshopper? I'm not able to find immediate information with my limited time.

I see it's a long time ago, but still everything counts. Good thing we have grinders like inkydigit :D

inkydigit is right, it's the genus Ambulyx. Not Marumba.
Nice spotting!
