A family in Milnerton found this little snake in their garden and managed to cover it with a plastic container, then called me to fetch it.

Found mostly in lowland forest, moist savannah, grassland, and fynbos, this fast-moving snake tends to hide quickly when disturbed.

Crossed Whip Snakes feed on small lizards as well as frogs.

Oviparous, they lay 3-13 eggs.
