Yeah definitely nigrescens. Red Bellies have a very different face to that. The only other one close to nigrescens is Crytophis boschmai, and the colour and scales on the head are wrong for that.

Thanks Ashley. While they are classed as venomous, they are virtually harmless, and extremely reluctant to bite. A bit different to some of the coral snakes you get out your way! :-)

Think he was still building it.

Hard to tell for sure without a closeup of the scales, but probably c.vivax. Could also be c.pectoralis or c.munda.

Great shot! Was this in a Zoo or something or just in a backyard?

Very hard to tell without more detailed pics, but potentially Lygisaurus laevis. A few others it could be as well.

I'm fairly confident it's a Carlia. Vivax was one of the few I saw that occurred close to your range. Carlia tetradactyla was more in the right range, but the adults didn't look much like it. I've found a juvenile photo of that though, and it looks pretty close, I think that's what it is. Check out the photo here - http://hvbackyard.blogspot.com.au/2007/0....
