    Looks like a Carpet Python. Closeups can confirm it. Key areas are the head (flatten it out and photograph it from above and below, moistening it will help unravel it), a flattened area of the top middle of the body, and the underside of the base of the tail. A good size reference or telling us how long it is also helps. The picture isn't great but even so I'm pretty sure it's a Carpet Python, almost happy to say 100%.

    No need to unravel it. The small multiple mid body scales plus size and shape of ventrals identify it as belonging to a Carpet Python
