Puzzle 412 (Fillomino) [Snake]

This is a Fillomino Snake puzzle. A snake with a head and tail and unknown length must be drawn in the grid so that it contains all shaded cells. The snake does not touch itself, even at a point. The remaining spaces must be divided into polyominoes satisfying the usual Fillomino rules. The snake may touch polyominoes of the same size as itself.

    be somewhat more interesting. than Path in some ways, as the snake imposes some more restrictions on the Fillomino. Also, glad to see that Nonconsecutive and No-Rectangles made an appearance this year!
    (Darn, they’re much more strict about tardiness in high school than college or middle school. 😦 )

    I quite liked the uniqueness logic in this one, particularly with the 6 and 8 in the bottom left. Well done.
