Ladder Snake out in winter

This snake “elaphe scalaris” is a ladder snake, we saw it alive, sunning itself, on the road near Cobdar, Almería on 1st January 2007.

I think it is unusual to see these out in the winter. This snake is common in southern Spain, a constrictor by nature, harmless to humans.
