[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an Old World sand boa(Erycinae)
The Erycinae are part of a family of nonvenomous snakes called boas found in Europe, Asia Minor, Africa, Arabia, central and southwestern Asia, India, Sri Lanka, and western North America. Three genera comprising 15 species are currently recognized.
They are found in south and southeastern Europe, Asia Minor, north, central, west and east Africa, Arabia, central and southwestern Asia, India, Sri Lanka, southwestern Canada, the western United States, and northwestern Mexico.
Fossil erycines have been found in rock strata over 50 million years old, and were once widespread in North America. Now, only two species remain in North America, as well as the sand boas in Africa, Asia, and southeastern Europe.

Hello Joy,
This is a new species for me and quite unique looking. I like your choice of a very low POV and the super sharp focus on the head area. Beautiful rich bronze color and just the right exposure.
I am curious, is it a fast moving snake on the ground or a slow mover.
