When we are out on the roads, we do come across these road kills ā€“ in this case, a Striped Kukri Snake (Oligodon octolineatus) run over on a small road. It is rather hard for a motorist to spot a small snake. But for animals who can be easily spotted, please watch your speed on the roads. Not only for their lives which are at stake, but for your own safety as well.

Another little favour you can do for the animals is this: When you come across such small road kills, please help to remove the dead animal to the roadside to prevent secondary road kills of birds or scavengers who may feed on the dead animal. Kindly do it safely: Please park the vehicle in a proper space, and use a stick/twig/plastic bag to move the carcass away from the roads.
