Rat Snake (Ptyas mucosus) English - Oriental Rat snake, Rat Snake | Hindi- Ghoda-Pachad | Marathi-Dhaman

During a photowalk I have seen this beautiful snake, its rainy season in india and this is te most common species of snake in whole asian continent. Normal length is 7 ft but grow up to 11.5 ft if fortunate to survive. It is non venoms species and identified by broad head than neck .these are killed due to their long sige and people get scared to runs faster than a horse on land and I was fortunate while capturing him that he was in mood of rest at that time :)
