Reasonably sized snake, approx 1metre maybe 1.2metres long. Dark Brown to olive with paler shades underneath. Head darker than rest of the body, black eyes, face slightly rust coloured around the nose, very pale under the head.
Seen in urban backyard (in the stairwell!)
The only time I have seen a snake in Dar (not for want of looking) and he was a total surprise at the bottom of the stairs in an apartment building I wanted to investigate more, but i stamped loudly to scare him away before anyone else saw him as usually any snake in an urban area will be killed.
