I saw this handsome lizard from far, he stood there, motionless, as if he knew that I would pass his way. Most interestingly, he showed me the other color of his face, but the the white spot remained white. I think I have its female's photograph.

Bamboo Pit Viper (Trimeresurus gramineus) Trimeresurus gramineus

Observer

zeus

Date

September 1, 2013

Description

Upper parts usually bright green, rarely yellowish, greyish, or purplish brown, with or without black, brown, or reddish spots; usually a light, white, yellow, or red streak along the outer row of scales; end of tail frequently yellow or red; lower parts green, yellow, or whitish. Grows to a total length of 2.5 feet (0.76 m); tail 5.5 inches (14 cm). The Crotalinae are characterised by the presence of a triangular head and heat-sensing pit organs located between the eye and the nostril on either side of the head. The pits are openings to a pair of very sensitive infrared detecting organs, which helps them to find the small warm-blooded prey on which they feed.

zeus

Date

July 28, 2013

Description

The green vine snake is diurnal and mildly venomous. The reptile normally feeds on frogs and lizards using its binocular vision to hunt. They are slow moving, relying on camouflaging as a vine in foliage. The snake expands its body when disturbed to show a black and white scale marking. Also, they may open their mouth in threat display and point their head in the direction of the perceived threat.

I was amazed to find this Draco in Njeezhoor, an agricultural land, near Kaduthuruthy in Kottayam. I saw two lizards on one tree. One here has a slight color variation on its tail.
