In Reply to: snake cought in South Korea posted by thetodd on September 30, 2002 at 05:02:29:

it may be a Dione's ratsnake - Elaphe dione. Have you checked this possibility? I had a pair in my collection. The head markings were spectacular! The patterns on their heads were very ornamental, quite broken up, but nice colors - browns and golds. They were very docile animals and quite small. The female as an adult was about 2 ft long and the male was even smaller.
Are you in South Korea? I am trying to get in touch with keepers here. I would really like to like to try and begin a collection again. Hope to hear from you.

I recently was brought a snake that was cought in rural South Korea. I couldn't identify much about the snake other than it was a colubrid. It was aproximately 15 inches long and had an overall olive drab to slightly greener color. It had broken bands along its body with bright orange spots on either side inbetween every set of bands. It was a really interesting snake and was extremely placid. Any help in identify this snake would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Todd Becker
