Kleinmond snake: Spotted House Snake (Lamprophis guttatus)

Postby Gnome » Thu Dec 30, 2010 11:20 pm

At the base of Balene (runaway wall) in Kleinmond, we came across a small Spotted House Snake this evening. Totally harmless and a rare sighting. Keep an eye out. The fright is also worth a laugh, jumping off into space...
