Hi would like to know what type of snake this is. My girlfriend found it on their farm near bloemfontein and by the looks of it it was busy eating a small mouse. Any info would be appreciated thanks! :D

Yeah technically harmless and is helping her with their mouse problem. Tell her to remember that any snake with lines running down its body is going to not be of any medical importance. If she sticks with that these snakes can safely be left around the house and sheds.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
