    Know what I didn’t think of smooth green you might be on to something. I was going by small head with large round eye. Smooth scales and the chin apeares white then gets dark on rest of belly. Yes that white patch is confusing to me as well

    What makes you think racer? On second look I'm leaning on smooth green. Long tail, immaculate venter, 17 scale rows, no keels on scales, large eye, I've seen em turn blue black post mortum. What's confounding is one patch of white dorsal scales.
