Psammophis leopardinus???

Postby reptile » Thu Aug 07, 2014 2:49 pm

Hi Everyone,
Here are some pics of a snake that a friend found here in Malawi. It looks like a Psammophis leopardinus which would be a knew species here. Forgive me if I have the name wrong, but each time I research it on the internet they show me the Leopard Whip Snake. Though I read something about a new/sub species that was found in 2002, which sounded more like the one he found. If different pictures are needed, please say so.
Regards Reptile

I am horrible at identifying Psammophis at species level, and don't know much about the genus, but it does look the part.
The way to success has no shortcuts.

Do you have the solution already? I would be very interested in the answer too. I posted these pictures in the Facebook group Psammophiidae, hoping someone would be able to solve the problem. You said you had more pictures. I would like to see them.
