Yes mr.Shantanu thats also a bridel snake only.. At is a another color form
of the same sps..
 U can make out a bridalsnake frm a wolf snake by looking at the head shape
as the bridal has a rounded head where as wolf snakes has a elongated
 head.. Body shape also changes by been very slender and long than of wat in
wolf snakes.. And bridals differ greatly in scalation fr example bridal
snake has 13 scale rows at the mid-body wen wolfs snakes have 17....
