Kukri


usually refers to a stylised knife (said to be Nepalese in origin), but in this case it refers to an extremely smart-looking snake – around 10-12cm long – that paid a visit to my house yesterday.  Here’s a picture of it all essed up, set to strike.

Kukri snakes are really handsome snakes, with bright lengthwise stripes that converge on their heads in a nice pattern, and a brilliant underside.  Here’s the kukri showing that off :)

A view of the kukri's brilliant belly :p

  1. Heh thanks :) It was a really rainy day, and we let the snake go after it got a bit drier. It was a really handsome snake, I think, with a hint of menace.
