Notes:
This adult and juvenile (black and gray banded) elapid, Black Garter Snake, were found under rotten logs during the day in the Amani Mountain Reserve in the East Usambara Mountains. The body pattern and overall coloration of the juvenile is different from that of an adult and goes through an ontogenetic shift to adulthood.
