Lycognathophis seychellensis (Schlegel, 1837)



A slender and graceful reptile. Individuals may be one of two distinct colour ‘phases’; a yellow phase or a dark phase. Yellow individuals have a yellowish-brown back, patterned with faint dark spots, while the underside is bright yellow. Dark phase individuals may either be dark or light grey with black or dark spots on the back, and the underside is white, with an abundant covering of small dark spots.
