Notes: Hatchlings are only about 9 inches, adults 22 -40 inches, so this is a little guy. The ID matches very well (again I did not turn him over but the scales on the head can be counted from the picture; they are correct). He was a bit agitated while I was photographing him. I then nudged him to encourage him to move out of the road and he took off very quickly and efficiently.
