Common Wolf Snake or Indian Wolf Snake (Lycodon aulicus), seen in the right side of the photo, below the horizontal white band of the wall.

The Common Wolf Snake is a non-venomous snake and is a rather uncommon resident on our office campus. They are often mistaken for the Common Krait which is a highly venomous snake. They are active in the night and feed on small lizards. They can climb vertical walls with ease as seen in the above photo. To know more, visit here.
