Kukri snakes are named after a kind of knife, in honor of their elongated tooth that is apparently used to pierce eggs and slice open skinks, and most definitely used to poke people who pick them up. This one looks so pretty and mellow though; I'm sure it would never poke anyone with its knife-like tooth.
