Description:

3 days before I had a Brown House Snake at my door (posted at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/651504?nav=parent_ob) and here it was at the neighbor's fence, next to my gate.

Having seen both I would say the first one might have been bigger. This one was definitely approx. 1 m, but the first one was a thicker snake.
