Red Jungle Fowl - the wild ancestor of all chicken
Archeological evidence indicates that the 'mother of all poultry' is the Red Jungle Fowl (Gallus gallus) found in India and Southeast Asia. This is further supported by genetic tests. Domestication of chicken has been observed at the Indus valley as early as 3,200 BC.
Thought this was an appropriate bird to share at this time of the year when eggs are in favour :)

Picture of the Day: The Stunning Green Vine Snake

The Green vine snake (Ahaetulla nasuta), is a slender green tree snake found in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.

It is diurnal and mildly venomous, normally feeding on frogs and lizards. Green vine snakes are slow moving, relying on camouflaging as a vine in foliage to hunt.

The snake expands its body when disturbed to show a black and white scale marking. Also, they may open their mouth in threat display and point their head in the direction of the perceived threat.

There is a widespread myth in parts of southern India that the species uses its pointed head to blind its human victims.

The species is viviparous, giving birth to young that grow within the body of the mother, enclosed within the egg membrane. Their venom is mild and causes swelling, with symptoms usually subsiding in three days.

Regarding this wonderful shot, photographer Suhaas Premkumar states this is, one of the most beautiful snakes I have found and shot so far, which is a photographer’s delight because of its vibrant colors and its posture, which is actually a self-defense posture.

Morning at Sea

I've been waking up at Ouch-o'clock every morning to see the sunrise off the front of the boat. It's always been worth it... listening to music, moving around the boat, pretty much totally alone except for a few members of the crew out doing their morning duties.

This morning, we went to Castaway Cay, which is Disney's private island in the Bahamas. I thought it would be kind of lame (I'm both cynical and optimistic!) -- but it was really awesome... we had a great time there!
