  • Abstract The Rat Snake, Zamenis hohenackeri (Strauch, 1873), was found at the foot of Hawraman Mountain and at Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan, which represents the first country record. The Racer subspecies Platyceps rhodorachis ladacensis (Anderson, 1871) was recorded for the first time in Iraq and the Montpellier Snake, Malpolon insignitus (Geoffroy, 1827), was found with a rare colour pattern.
