Common Wolf snake, is a nonvenomous members of the family Colubridae, named for large teeth in both jaws . It is both terrestrial and arboreal in habits and may be found, for example, in the dark crevices of figs and other trees.
The species is also known as the House Snake, as it often inhabits old, landed properties such as colonial-era bungalows and buildings near forested areas. In such places, it is assumed it preys on house geckos.
Its body is relatively slender, and its flattened head is larger than its body. Its dorsal skin is brown, and this is patterned with yellowish markings which form a nominally 'reticulate' pattern. There is a pale yellow band around the neck, and the suprablabial lip scales are yellowish too. Its underside is pale.
Whilst quite a harmless snake, it is quite ready to bite when disturbed.
