|Bioga bedomme; Indian Cat snake was shot by me at Lonavala. |
It is very aggressive snake. It lifts its head & forebody before striking & makes figure of 8 coil. Prior striking its erected part is swayed forewards & backwards; and the whole body is inflated & deflated with tail vibrating briskly. It has fangs in the back of mouth. The secretions of parotid glands are toxic & fatal to small animals/lizards.
