Hello Hayden, this image makes it a bit difficult to positively identify your snake. I also noticed that there appears to be an injury. Was this snake alive? Do you have a picture of the whole snake? If it was injured or dead, how did it become that way?

Here at Project Noah, we request that organisms are left in as natural a state as possible and are not harmed in any way (unless it was a natural occurance like predator/prey situation). If the snake is dead we request that you remove this spotting as it may be upsetting to other users.
Thank you for your understanding.
