Snakes: Karoo Whip

Unread postby Catriona » Fri Feb 18, 2011 7:54 pm

Hello all - when we were in the KTP in October, we saw this snake just north of Nossob. I'm hoping that it is a very obvious snake that everyone knows, but as I know nothing about snakes and come from the UK, please could you help me identify it. Thanks in advance. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:
