Nice bud!
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.

Is that a question/statement/query?

I would also love to know - I struggle to tell the difference between Squams and Chlorechis...

They are smoother in appearance than the squams. The paired yellow spots on the body are also unique although I have seen specimens that are plan green.
