I was lucky enough over the past weekend to find and photograph this little Pygmy Wolf Snake (Lycophidion pygmaeum)

Thought I would share.

Wow, what a rare find!

Amazing. Did you find it during the day or night? Cruising of flipping?

Very nice man!

How long was it? I got one in December was minute. Your long looks a decent size as the snout is very dull?

Hey Wes found it road cruising during the evening.
I was up that side for a weekends diving that went horribly south on the very first day so I decided to do a couple nights road cruising instead.
The air temp on Saturday was 29.5 at 8:30 in the evening!

Fooble this individual was an absolute beast tipping the scales at 248mm to the tail. :lol:

Didn't confirm but almost definitely a female.
