Species: Malabar Pit Viper
Location: Amboli, Maharashtra
Amboli is bustling with snake activity in the monsoons and it is one of my favorite haunts. The locals here mean no harm to these snakes and it is beautiful to see such biodiverse wildlife co-exist with humans. The Malabar Pit vipers coil up at a vantage point and remain there for weeks at end, waiting for the unsuspecting frog to come by.
