snake puzzle

The standard form of the snake puzzle contains a single snake whose segments are numbered 1 to N, of which certain segments are filled in initially, including the head and tail. The snake cannot touch itself, even diagonally (only squares with consecutive numbers may be orthogonally adjacent, and only ones with numbers that differ by 2 may be diagonally adjacent). Clues indicating the number of snake segments in certain rows and columns are are given. Black squares indicating spaces the snake cannot pass through may be given.
