What a fascinating video, I wonder why the snake left when it seemed it would get the better end :hmz:

Amazing!!! Wonderful sighting - I do hope the chameleon survived. So many of them become roadkill :(

Hello to the experts,

I have been lucky enough to stay for a few days in Kruger. And more luck: I found this one:

What kind of snake is it?

Looks to be another Boomslang by the rough edges to the scales

What a video. Thanks for sharing!

I actually doubt that the chameleon made it. Considering that the boomslang has the most potent venom for humans (least amount required to kill you), I can't imagine a chameleon surviving that.

(Hopefully you didn't drive over the fellow... otherwise he definitely wouldn't have made it :) )

Thank you very much Buch Snake.

Here are some head shots. He/She wash a bit quick so the fokus is not as is should be.

Boomslang 2

Boomslang 1

5 of them where taken on 1 trip in May last year. On this trip we had 12 snake spottings. I only manage to take photo's of 5. The one that got away that I'm really sad about where a black snake with white or ivory bands. It was beautiful.
