Cacophis squamulosus (Golden-crowned Snake)

So many times I've been fortuante enough to have my mate managing an animal for me and enabling the shot where he can't do both. It's a bit unfair - but he is super good at "fluffing" them as he likes to call it. It's about getting them into a pose that is natural even though there's a camera up close.
