Night Adder Call out

Postby Quintin » Tue Sep 02, 2008 3:49 pm

Hi All,

I got my first call out for the summer. It was a small (20 - 25 cm) Night Adder.

This is the 14th specimen I have found at my fiend’s house since last summer. I have posted some of them on previous posts. Here he is (It looks to be a male) not too sure:

The location is a town called Fochville in the north west province. All of them except for two i think were caught in the day (They are supposed to be nocturnal lol)... One of the todlers at the residance actually grabed this speciffic one by the tail, but thankfully nothing came of it..

The house where all of them were caught borders onto a big piece of open veld, but funny enough there is no water or streams nearby. There must be an abundance of frogs at this location though, as 14 of them ranging in different sizes were caught. Ive never seen anything like it. I'm pretty sure that two of the big ones i caught there must have been a breeding pair, and perhaps some where younger males that were after the big female?!

Here are some of the other links: (all caught at this location in a season and some i never even bothered posting)

Thanks for that Quintin, strange too that we just had a cold spell.
