Hello Angello, i am not sure completely but i think this is Psammophis schokari. I have seen a similar one in the collection of my mentor Prof. Bayram Göçmen (boreocypriensis) who visited Syria and Jordan in last year.
This is superb timely shot while it feeding a bird.
TFS and kind regards,

Hi Angello,

Firstly i congratulate you that you've took such very impressive and well-timed capture. Great work in all around!
On the id, Bahadır absolutely right! This is Psammophis schokari (Schokari Sand Racer) which is characterized by a dark stripe from snout through eye to temporal region. The colouration is very variable, sometimes uniform with small dots as is here or sometimes stripped dorsally.
Thanks a lot for this great contribution that i think this is also 1st post of the species on TN!


what a really lucky capture, tfs
