    I don’t think you’re real snake-o-philes…

    UK has three species i believe, Grass, Smooth and Adder, i would be very surprised if it was a Smooth snake. Most probably a grass snake

    Got back from me hols to find the remains of a snake in my garden. Any snake-o-philes able to inform me what kind of snake it is/was? It is about 2ft long and appears to have the remaining bones of its last supper near its skeleton.

    I’m no expert but i’m not sure that bright blue snakes are native to North Bristol…

    I think it’s got a puncture.

    it’s not a snake it’s a lizard!

    Google male slow worm , a lot have a blueish tinge.

    Were there any mushrooms or badgers in the vicinity?

    I’d be more worried about where the bloody snake is, might be coiled up on your window ledge. Might not even be native to good old Bristol, maybe someone didn’t want their venomous pet any longer.

    Thanks for the help everyone (mix of sincerity and sarcasm there).

    CFH – no sign of mushrooms or badgers nearby but a fox den under the shed.

    Carlosg – slow worm may explain it but I thought the skeleton & mouse remains we’re quite snake like (but I don’t know much/anything about slow worms).

    Saleem – it’s left it’s skeleton, stomach contents and skin behind so I think it’s died rather than shed it’s skin.

    It’s certainly not a Slow Worm, the scales are too large, and looking at the size compared to the leaves, too long. Most likely a grass snake.

    Is Bristol not home to the BBC natural history dept? They’ll be able to tell you and all for the price of a local rate phone call.

    Doesn’t look like a grass snake, as they are olive green (well the ones in my pond are!)

    and the scales look to big for a slow worm.

    Its not going to be a smooth snake in Bristol.

    Its more than likely an escaped pet. Dunno what type it is though
