I was called last night around midnight after some Melkbosstrand residents saw this little snake curled around a tree in their garden.

Olive Snakes prefer moist habitats and can often be found in rubble and debris near human dwellings.

They feed on lizards, rodents, and other snakes.

Oviparous, Olive Snakes lay 5 – 15 eggs in the summer.
