Thu, 23 Feb 2017 19:43:13 -0800Dendrelaphis tristis is a long, slender snake with a pointed head and a bronze coloured line running right down its back. Its diet includes geckos, birds and occasionally frogs. This harmless snake prefers the tree tops to life on the ground. It is camouflaged (made invisible by means of protective coloring ) among the leaves because of its uniform ruddy brown skin. This active snake is restless and quick, both on the ground as well as in the trees. Generally a lively and plucky snake, its disposition varies from one example to another. It is found in southern India and the Himalayan foothills.
