Snake relocation - Northern Angola

Postby Warren Klein » Mon Mar 09, 2015 7:21 pm

Here are some happy snaps from my snake release over the weekend. All these snakes were captured over the previous week from in and around various construction sites in Soyo Northern Angola. Not the greatest pics but still some nice snakes.

This relocation site is next to a large lake with excellent Mamba habitat.

Wielding Whip snakes!

Gravid female Psammophis. She was carrying about 10 eggs.

Thanks for looking!
