That's a Corn snake.

An exotic. Please do not release it.

I am astounded by the amount of exotics caught the past while!

It's a corn snake or a rat/corn hybrid.

Def. a hatchling corn snake. So whatever you do please don't set it free as they do not occur naturally in S.A so it must be a escapee unless you posted the wrong pic haha...?

Another exotic.
Had a adult Corn snake photo emailed to me on Monday found in Vryheid too.

Bad news.

It probably belongs to one of your neighbours, I don’t think that little fellow would have travelled to far.
