ID of snake please

Hi all,

New here! I found this little guy under a brick in the back garden this morning. Can't be more than a cm in diameter, not sure how long. Sorry, did not put a ruler next to it for scale :-( Kenridge area of Durbanville.

I think it might be a slug eater, but would like it to be confirmed.

Hi

You're correct. It's a common slug eater (Duberria lutrix).
