Bridle Snake

Dryocalamus

Description:

Not great photos as this snake was on an overhead rafter, but I would be interested to get an ident as it was in a friends kitchen. The head was black and then grey with black blotches on it's back plus some other markings that were difficult to see and a a cream underbelly. Approx 60cms long and a bit thicker than a pencil
