I was in Jeju for the weekend with my in-laws, celebrating my mother-in-laws seventieth birthday. My photos of that time are okay and I may share one or two but they are nothing noteworthy.
This cutie is, though!
My dog ran right over this snake but its regular pattern caught my eye and I took a few pics.
The head is diamond shaped and the posture it took tells me it is venomous.
Keelback snakes have the same pattern but are normally a beautiful red around the head and first quarter or so of its body. They are also a meter or more long at full size. For now, I am calling this an immature keelback and corrections are entirely welcome.
