cannibalism in Common krait
whole Photo series of Cannibalism in Common krai
I was very lucky to document one of the rarest moment.
Here’s the story behind this documentation, i got a call of 2 snakes fighting for around an hour just outside an entrance of a society. As i reached the spot i saw they were Common kraits and the larger one was trying to feed on the another krait who was on moult. Krait feeding on several snakes has been reported many times but this type of cannibalism is happens quite rare and i was lucky enough to witness one. Here’s the whole photo series of cannibalism in common krait. And soon later the snake was rescued and was bagged safely so that it won’t vomit (regurgitate), while releasing the snake I was happy to see that the snake didn’t regurgitate.
