the Mock Viper, Psammodynastes pulverulentus
For more information about this lovely little snake, please go to www.hongkongsnakeid.com, our sister site; Today i will present a gallery of pictures of some of many mocks i have found.
They also have a habit of playing dead, like a stick, like in this image, where the snake did not move at all.
