Nature’s Spectacular Patterns By Yuwaraj Gurjar
Fast And Venomous
The bamboo pit viper is a venomous pale green snake with faint, uneven black patterns on its back. Its golden irises and black slit-like pupils are extremely striking. As seen in this image taken in Matheran, this snake prefers to live among vines, bushes and bamboo. Slow moving and nocturnal, they rely on camouflage for protection. Although slow to defend themselves, they are capable of fast strikes and bites when threatened.
