Hey there

That's a MArbeld Tree Snake, Dipsadoboa aulica. They are mildly venomous, but generally considered harmless.

They are actually quite rare, so I suggest release him in the garden and enjoy him. Who knows, maybe he'll stick around.

Indeed, and a lovely one at that ! I would be ecstatic if I am ever lucky enough to find one.
