Was picking some chilies when we came across this small beauty.
It is a Painted Bronzeback Dendrelaphis pictus, very common in the farm.
Eats frogs, lizards, snails and slugs. Can grow to 3 feet long.
Generally found up low lying trees and bushes, feeding on frogs and snails.
Not harmful to humans.
Every garden should have one or two to keep snails population down.
