Maybe we should have a few more goes before you "spill the beans"? :wink: After all, it's a very good Q. :thumbs_up:

OWN- garter snakes here in North America have been known to be gregarious - but I am not sure on the garter snake found in SA, so still not the snake I was looking for!

I did more research on the cape cobra - and there are anecdotal reports that they be found hibernating together, but the resource stated that it was not confirmed! Half marks?!? :shock:

I have 2 species in mind! Let me know if you need a hint!

No, I think we'll wear you down, Jaytea. :lol: Some more research today and I'll try again later. :thumbs_up:

BTW, you're not thinking of some diplomats, are you? :twisted:

is this snake poisonous or not? it might help us to sort-of narrow our search.

There are 2 different snakes that are known to be gregarious in Southern Africa- one is venomous and one is not!
Does that help!? :twisted:
