I saw this Mole Snake moving from hole to hole while I was hiking in Koeberg Nature Reserve recently.


Mole Snakes are found in a variety of habitats – even mountainous regions and deserts – but they’re particularly common in sandy scrub-covered and grassveld regions.

They spend most of their time underground, pushing their way through soft sand in search of moles and other rodents.

Juvenile (young) mole snakes have a variety of patterns and colors that they lose completely once they reach adulthood.

Viviparous, Mole Snakes give live birth to anywhere between 25-50 babies in late summer.
