Last time when I saw this Common Wolf Snake (Lycodon aulicus) it was juvenile. I saw this snake on Nag Panchami Day a day of revering snakes . I am not really sure it is the same snake or any of of its brethren. But surely it had grown up and developed a nice bands which made this non-poisonous look like poisonous snake Banded Krait. This was a nice example of Batesian Mimicry.
These bands were not visible in the juvenile which I photographed earlier. Snake was as easy to handle as before without showing any aggressiveness.
I photographed and released the snake back in my backyard, so that I will have another glimpse few days or weeks later.
