A medium size snake having brown body and yellowish bands. This is one of the most common species found in and around human habitation including exclusive urban areas. Also this is the most widely distributed Lycodon species in Indian subcontinent. Due to bands on its dark color body layman often gets confused with Common Krait and try to threat it. At heights inside houses it can be seen occasionally while feeding on geckos.
