Description

Observed for about 10 minutes. It appeared to be searching for a recently envenomated prey item. The snake was circling the area for the 10 minutes I watched it, tongue-flicking, and moving its head side to side. It crossed the paved trail/road multiple times searching along each road edge. About 30 people walked by as this was happening.

These are the same species as the well documented Satwiwa ground bees. This particular area had nesting activity across about 5 square meters. I came back through the area around 3pm and there were only about 15% of the number of bees as in the morning, when there must have been over 10,000.
