Saurabh Sawant's Eyeview of the Animal Kingdom
Cat snakes are very long, slender, mildly-venomous snakes with vertical pupils in their eyes similar to cats which give them their name. They’re arboreal and feed on small prey, and can be found on rocks and crevices as well. They’re agile with strikes and superb at manoeuvring on trees.
This image was taken with a Canon EOS 400D & Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 with Canon 600 EX-RT Flash in Kudremukh National Park. An external flash is used to light up the subject so that it stands out against the camouflaging background.
