Common Slug Eater, Duberria l lutrix. Found Northern KZN. Released after photo-shoot. Will upload in situ shots as soon as I get a chance.

Loved the solid stripe down the back.

Enjoy.

Nicely striped specimen! Looks like the coxi Bamboo Ratsnakes haha.

Nice catch.

Was a real pleasure to work with it, and the missus got her first musking. Awesome as always. Enjoy!

Westley, the missus caught it, not me, hence her first musking experience...

Levi_20, They are lovely snakes, but I have never managed to keep them in captivity. Maybe just not my type of snake... they never fed. Oh, and I prefer the last in-situ, from below. Gives a small snake an air of superiority. ;)

Eyelash, they are lovely little ones, and the color is amazing, if you look up close.

Thanks kfc223, now I need to get the exposure right, don't know why they turn out darker than on my pc at home.

Thanks fires, appreciate the compliment!
