: Hi everyone,

: I currently live in Indonesia, and have just aquired what can only be described as a rainbow snake. It has a small, cobra-like head, it's black on top and white underneath. When you look at it in the light, it has a beautiful rainbow colouring running down the lenght of its body. It's currently less than a metre in length, and the guy I bought it from said it can grow up to 1m50

: What this snake is?

It is probably a sunbeam snake. grows to about 125cm, is meant to be relatively harmless but I am sure that I saw one attack a lizard and it, the lizard, seemed to give up the fight relatively fast so there may be some poison involved. It is a nocturnal semi burrowing species found in humid climates.
