Interesting colours morph - possibly a juvenile thing

I thought that was 3 different snakes but each part of its body has different patterns, cool!

Try Dryophiops rubescens.
A good find whatever.

Anytime, like I said I am no expert - hopefully the PN herp experts will voice their opinion on this one :)

I have a feeling the oriental whip snake has a much brighter green appearance.I was with someone who believed it may be called a 'wood whip snake' but it seems we are getting somewhere:). I will wait a few more days for some opinions before concluding.
Thanks very much for you opinion:).

I am no herpetology expert but that does look a lot like an oriental whip snake..
