The area has tropical humid to sub-humid climate. So far the Chrysopelea ornata snake has not been reported from either the Dantewada district or the Chhattisgarh state. The snake was first sighted on a Ficus tree within the Kirandul city area in Dantewada district. The present study has described the morphology of the presently caught snake.
