Baby Wolf Snake Hanging Out in Doorway Surprises Man
Occurred on April 23, 2021 / Havelock Island, Andaman, India
Info from Licensor: Mervyn recorded this baby Wolf Snake (maybe 2 or 3 days after its birth). As I was leaving for my work this day at around 7:30 in the morning, I was closing my house door and saw this wandering on my doorknob. I was scared for a second but realizing it was a non-venomous species and to my surprise being a nocturnal species, it was on the door early in the morning. I let it on its own as our surrounding is their natural habitat and probably as it was lost from its siblings after birth after returning the same day
Interesting fact: This species is also known as Oriental Wolf Snake/Cappuccino Wolf Snake and is endemic to Andaman and Nicobar Islands India, commonly feeds on lizards and frogs.
