I'm guessing an aberrant patterned African House Snake.

I'm not as experienced as you guys, but isn't the pupil the wrong shape?

You're correct, most pictures I've seen depict a vertical-slit pupil; but I'm still guessing an AHS with a dilated pupil.... I am probably wrong though.

Yup, this is the rare calico morph house snake.. LOL

For some weird reason, this normally brown common house snake, looked alot like Maclotts python this morning.. It seems to be able to turn those blotches on and off whenever it feels like it. When it was a hatchling I thought it had some skin infection the first time it did it.
I have 4 of these snakes, and only this one seems to be able to change it's color

Agree that she resembles a Maclotts - very suggestive. She is a really neat looking house snake - a species I would really like to have if I could have all that I want. Can you post photos of the rest of yours - any reds?
