PhotoBlog: Snakes at Bannerghatta (Bangalore)

This is what I was craving for, when I decided to go to Bannerghatta Biological Park - Snakes. I feel snakes are the most under-rated and under-estimated animals. By the way, I like them on TV and not actually in front of me - for reasons best known to mankind.

And who better than capturing the King himself!

Skin has been shed. But where's the king? Guess he's acting pricey - 


There he is, but where's his head - 


And I have my answer (enlarge the pic to view clearly). Isn't he looking directly at me? - 


OK. He's coming down. He means business - 


Coming down - 


Guess its time to show the hood - 



And he happily went inside his 'home'. No more show guys. King Cobra needs to rest. Ciao! Am very happy to have captured King Cobra (on my camera, that is)..

  1. Nice captures of the king cobra. I had been to Bannerghatta National Park sometime back. You may want to check out the cobra in my post.
