Snake Identification

Fri May 25, 2012 10:24 pm

This is the place to ask for identification. Please post your pictures here and add location of the sighting.

Interesting photos of identified species will be added to the relevant Africa Wild Snake Book here on our forum. Usually new entries or additional photos don't show as new posts, but are filed according to taxonomic order (and not according to date of the forum post).
If you don't want your photos to be included to the AW database, please add a comment to your post here.

I had this little chap outside my house last night. I think it's a young Puff Adder.
