Cave racer snake - Orthriophis taeniura ridleyi also called Elaphe taeniura ridleyi (Borneo)

It seems that it is also called Cave Dwelling Rat snake.­

If you know which is the preferred denomination for this snake, please post a comment.­

The cave racer (Elaphe taeniura) is the only snake which is adapted to spend its whole life in a cave, feeding exclusively on bats and swiftlets.­ It is non-venomous.­

Spotted in Lang Cave, in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo)
