Readers Write In: What are These Guinea Snakes and What are They Doing?



   Most of the snakes we are asked to identify are from North America (but not always). However, today we must get into a Guinea state of mind. The following pictures just arrived courtesy of Andrew Durso (author of the snake-centric blog, Life is Short, but Snakes are Long). A friend of his from Guinea came across these snakes on his way to work and he wants our help in figuring out what they are. The animals are involved in what is most likely a serpentine menage a trois: two males are courting a female.

I'm afraid I won't be much use identifying the snakes because I am stumped. I have no expertise in the animals from this part of the world. But, I know there is someone out there who can help us out....

What are these snakes?
