Re: "Extra Large" Whip snake from Soyo in Angola

Hi BV, you are right the snake was very chunky. At first glance I thought it was possibly gravid but turns out it was a male. This specimen was also in near perfect condition. I would guess that 60% of the whip snakes I capture have part of the tail missing and at least some scarring. Interestingly ...

Nile Soft-Shelled Terrapin rescue - Congo river,Soyo, Angola

"Tartaruga anormal" This was the description I received from one of our boat crews who, while out on patrol on the Congo river, had come across a "turtle" floundering on the surface. The "turtle" was tangled up in fishing line and had a large hook embedded in its mouth....

Re: Snake ID

Hi there, I am also based in Angola but further north in Soyo. This species of whip snake is by far the most common snake species that we come across. Just a few pointers if you do attempt to catch them. Avoid grabbing the end of the tail, they tend to thrash around violently when first captured and...
