This summer I went to Lausanne, Swiss where I visited the serpentarium and was able to take some nice images of some reptiles, snakes included. I was able to write down some names but not all . I know it may be a long shot with just the heads in a shot, but if not, then just enjoy the images :D

This is one I could ID : Candoia carinata paulsoni


This guy was very nice , but I have no idea just what it is unfrotunatelly



Here's a shot of an Anaconda, huge but very nice



And here another little guy , which I think lives around Iran/Iraq and which was nto happy at all with me and my macro lense in front of his tank (He even started to sizzle when I was 3 meters away from it :shock: )

Thanks both for your reactions; I think that Gonyosoma oxycephalum is correct and I have adapted it's name on my image website.

About the Natrix maura I am not sure enough for now (but just to be clear : I still appreciated your feedback Gaz !). I'll look a bit deeper into it with this name. Got the impression the images I encounter of that snake are minly darker , this one is more pale and my god ... did he know how to make noise !
