Identify This Snake


Recommended Posts

looks very nasty. Not poisonous I hope? Please rate the tastiness from 1 to 10 after cooking! Some comparison to commonly-available food would be nice.

Looks like a common house snake

A dead common huse snake

The OP's snake is different, the common house snake that you have in this photo is typically referred to as a Wolf snake (Lycodon Capucinus)

Moving some rocks to plant some palm trees this morning 

 

and found this thing curled up.

 

It's still all balled up and alive.

 

Should I slay and flay and saute

 

or wake it up and send it on its way?

looks like some sort of constrictor but we really need to see the head to tell if it's poisonous. constrictors keep the rat population down, however they don't discriminate against dogs, cats, small mammals including toddlers.

 

Use your best judgement!

Dang. Was wondering why the neighbors gave me three pesos to plant some palm trees. Now I know!

 

 

 

Reticulated Python maybe?  

 

Think we got a winner. Thanks mate!

Thank God!!! I was worried about those warning points...could've taken me over the top.

 

How big is he/she? Might be worth keeping around.

That's a reticulated Python. Not venomous, but unsafe when close to small warm blooded critters, including pets and even children. Commonly found in trees as well. We have them close by as the feast on the roaming chickens and rats. If discovered, they are commonly killed as served as a meal.

Keep it safe and call it Brian. It'll clear rats/mice and any other furry creatures from your area.

I would love to find a retic near my home
