    Yep Slaty grey (Stegonotus cucullatus). The loreal scale is the obvious giveaway.

    While I cannot clearly make out the loreal scale, the shape of the inter-nasals and pre-frontals plus the temporal and post-temporal scales, clearly says Slaty-grey and not Northern Small-eyed, as does the lack of orange tinge on the lower flanks.
