Creating quite a buzz in Arunachal Pradesh’s newly formed Lepa Rada district, a Guwahati-based Zoologist has discovered a species of the snake that ‘cries’.
Jayaditya Purkayastha, a zoologist based in Guwahati, Assam, claimed to have located the unique snake—scientifically known as ‘Hebius Lacrima’– in Arunachal’s Barsar district.
This snake is non-venomous and measured 48.7 centimeters in length, as per details recently published in a scientific journal.
The snake was spotted by Purkaystha in a paddy field in the outskirts of Basar.
