Dahl's whip snake

Spotted a Dahl's whip snake (Platyceps najadum) on my walk with the dog this evening (my first snake sighting here!). I figured it was a colubrid, but had to rely on good ol google for an id. Unfortunately, it sped off into the reed beds before I could get a pic so the attached picture is not one of my own. The one I saw was approximately 40cm long and as thick as a pencil. Lovely orange brown colour with the grey pattern up at the head. It was sitting in the middle of the dirt track road we were walking on. Shortly after the snake encounter, we found a crab which was not impressed with my dogs inquisitiveness and promptly attached itself to her snout!
