Guardian of the Woods!!
While walking in the thick forest with foggy weather we were trying to find the one which looks like a vine with hypnotic yellow eyes. We passed by many plants, trees, shrubs, and more but it all looked similar and we understand that whether or not we can see them, they are watching us. Suddenly, it started raining and we realized that now it’s our chance as the fog started to move out. Now, we were able to see more clearly and there it was, watching us while guarding the woods. It was like a slender vine with a horizontal black pupil. Because of its perfect camouflage, it can easily blend in with the surroundings.
This amazing creature from western ghats is one of the important animals to maintain balance in the food chain. Still, many snakes species are under threat of extinction due to increasing conflict with humans, habitat destruction, road kills, over-harvesting, and even climate change.
