Sadly this snake was hit by another car as we drove up to it and I think death was instantaneous. We saw it in June this year at Tihongonyeni. Can anyone identify it for me?

Salamanda, to me it looks like a "Olive Grass Snake" :hmz:

Sad to see that they die like this. :(

I agree with Philip - an Olive Grass snake
