I collected this young Karoo Whip Snake from another local snake catcher who captured it at a house in Table View earlier today so we could make a video of the release.

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.
