After one whole day of hunting in the beach, I came back to my cousin's home for my final night in India! But just before I entered the house, my dad told me of a snake skin he spotted during the day while I was at the beach. Just a few metres from the front gate there it was. A shedded skin of a Spectacled Cobra.
Tried searching for the snake around but to no avail. It should have escaped into some rat hole or must have slithered away into the bushes. However, it was getting dark so I had to go indoors. Left for Singapore the next morning.
