Hi folks,

Was sent this earlier and posted it to our Facebook group where there
was a mix of opinions.

I thought it could have been either a Blunt Nose Viper or a Cat snake.

What say you??



Cheers

Steve

Difficult but my guess is BNV, judging from apparently short tail.

Certainly looks similar to the BNV’s that we get around our area. Head looks really similar as well.

I made this web page many moons ago:
http://aev-uk.com/cyprus/snakes/
(disclaimer, I am no snake expert !)

From info gained there, need to see the eyes better to make destinction between cat snake and blunt nose viper, viper has "eye brows" cat snake does not and the mouth is very different.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts - I think the snake will hopefully have
slithered away now but to be on the safe side I advised them to avoid it
anyway.

Cheers
