    Chrysopelea taprobanica, the Sri Lankan flying snake was sighted in Seshachalam Biosphere Reserve of Andhra Pradesh, India. This was the first time that the snake was sighted outside the island nation as previously it was considered that this snake is epidemic to the dry and intermediate zones of Sri Lanka. This discovery also highlights that probably the species moved to India when the dry zones of peninsular India and Sri Lanka were connected, about 17000 years ago.
