Which one is the pastel and which is the normal?? They both look rather normal to me (according to the different localities). Would love to see the patternless though.

I got this today . . .


If that is so I am sure your supplier will know but yeah I agree with arcadies as it is a house snake no question. If in doubt take a scale count.

Midbody scale count is 25-35 rows, with 186-228 ventrals and 45-71 paired subcaudals. The anal plate is entire.
There are about 8 or 9 upper labials with the 4th or 5th entering the eye.

Easy why ask??????? :roll:

Okay Shaun, it's easy - - - What house snake is it then - - - The scale counts you copied out of Johan Marais's book are that of the L. capensis. So you say it's a Brown house snake . . . Ummmm . . . Could be but I have my doubts. Lets hear from the others what they think.

Were you living??? In the Western Cape and what do you think it would be Mmmmm.
Check Southern African Snakes, Field guide of snakes, field guide to the snakes by Bill Branch, Snakes & Snake bites by Johan Marais etc, etc.

I am aware you are no rocket scientist but dang I did not think you a totally ……… what ever?
If the animal was caught wild there is no problem as the answered is an easy one. If you are still confused ask your supplier. O.K
