We found this baby snake in front of our house today. Probably our cat, Kaisu, who eats all sorts of moving things (grasshoppers, chameleons, garden lizards, skinks, mice) brought this here. The snake was scared and would not show its head. We have a resident Rock Python in our forest so our first thought went out to it, but on looking up on the internet, it seems more like a Sand Boa. Since we cannot definitively ID it please do confirm the identity of our little friend if you can.
