Dummerils black headed snake[Sibynophis subpunctatus]
is one of the uncommon snakes in india becuse this snake is very small and mainly found in forest areas; so sighting of this species is very rare. I get this snake specimen during my project on Fauna diversity of Rajmachi one of the hot spot from western
ghat. I study this specimen for 8 months. After studying them i found this snake shows different type of Defence behavior i.e it acts like dead snake when the large predator approaches it; also as soon as it feels predator leave that place it slowly turns
the head and moves with fast speed and starst going under the soil. these and many amazing facts i have studied about this snake.
If you want more details about this snake pls mail on
