    Hi,

    A mate that lives on the NSW Central Coast has been getting a daily visit from this guy/gal, any ideas of type?

    Sorry but it's the only photo he could get.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Mathew

    Possibly black bellied swamp snake (marsh snake) bit hard without seeing the head.

    It's a Marsh Snake.

    I've never seen a marsh snake but my immediate reaction was Whip snake quite heavy bodied though
