Green Keelback is a yellowish-green colored snake found in peninsular India except above Gangetic plains and most of the Eastern India. This can be identified by checking rich green or yellowish-green body marked with more or less irregular black bands or patches. In most of its life it bears yellow color V shaped marking guarded by black on nape. Sometimes it can be confused with Cobra due to its habit of showing narrow fake hood above the ground as a nervous response.
