The Arunachal Pit Viper


A Bugun Liocichla introduces you to the Arunachal Pit Viper in my column with The Hindu today! Discovered recently by researchers in West Kameng, Arunachal, the Arunachal Pit Viper bears a close resemblance to the Hump-nosed Pit Viper of the Western Ghats. The discovery was made by Rohan Pandit and Wangchu Phiang, a member of the Bugun community that has been earning laurels for their community conservation work in Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary.
