Very nice snake, and they can get so fat and huge.


Mongoose yes they are indigenous to several central African countries.

The species of N. nigricollis is indigenous to SA if Naja nigricinta's elevation to species status is not accepted.

Normally mice however in the wild they eat any other reptiles and small amphibians too.

Why are the pictures blocked?

Not sure what you mean. Both these (N. nigricollis & N. nigricinta) is exotic
N. nigricinta -> Namibia
N. nigricollis -> several central african countries.

None of them occure wild within SA.

N n. woodi does.

Now this could be of the subspecies N. nigricincta or N. nigricollis.

If they accept that N. nigricincta is a full species then you cannot keep Western barred spitters without a permit and if they dont accept that and say that all three are subspecies of Naja nigricollis then you will need a permit for your animal too.

Look for the explanation under the Aspidelaps thread.
