That's a stunner! At first glance I could have easily confused it for a harlequin snake. Never seen them with such vivid colours.

Good observation serpent! Both aurora's and harley's occur in termitaria and this one with the vivid vertebral stripe and black tipping does indeed make it look like the more mottled colour phase of harlequins.
