Notes

Found under rock in floodplain of river.

I don't know what to make of this snake - ID is uncertain and could be T. ordinoides. Counted 8 upper labials and 10 lower labials, but only 19 scale rows at midbody. If T. elegans, coloration appeared more like a T. e. terrestris to me, but close to integration zone.
