It's pretty (I'm not much into snakes, the only ones I've seen in the wild have always had triangle heads and rattly tails, not something to get close to). That one had a pretty pattern to it.

Snakes always get a bad rap, something to do with a garden years ago, but they are beautiful and have a wonderful texture as long as they're not sinking fangs into you! When we lived in Thailand and Malaysia we got to see a lot of them.

Great shot(s), snakes are something that we don't have around here.

Well, if this were in the Pacific Northwest, I'd say it got slimed by a Banana Slug! :lol: Seriously, though, the dull skin may be ready to be shed, and the head already cleared (although it is usually hanging on somewhere) - they have to get it off the head first, so they can see again, as the corneal scale goes opaque before shedding - a blind snake is a vulnerable snake. Of course, it could just be wet - sometimes a water snake on the shore will stick its head under to see what might be lurking there before going in. Or maybbe it has been spat on? Take your choice. :?
