Some Melkbosstrand residents saw this little snake under their fridge and called me to catch it for them earlier today.

Often found in fynbos, grassland, arid savannah, and karoo scrub, the Karoo Whip Snake is alert and quick-moving. It feeds mainly on lizards, mice, and other small rodents.

Oviparous, they lay 3-8 eggs in the summer.
