Here’s another submission from Paul Donatus, in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

This is a striped keelback – nice looking snakes that we don’t see here in the south at all. I’ve seen none of them, so I think they are much more common in the northern parts of the country.

Order: Squamata
Suborder: Serpentes
Family: Colubridae
Subfamily: Natricinae
Genus: Amphiesma

Binomial name: Amphiesma stolatum
Classified by Linnaeus in 1758.

Thanks Paul!
