Hidden Jewel of Westernghats
Uropeltis, Shieldtail snakes in Western Ghats are divided into two major groups (elliotii and ceylanica). While this snake belongs to the later, species level identification is quite difficult in the field. This snake does resembel Uropeltis phipsoni to certain extent, but there is a good chance that more species might be discovered and added in this group. Western Ghats have lot more then we expect.
