some of you know if this dead snake is a cobra or a molesnake or else?
We sighted him driving along the gravel road from Lambert's Bay to Doring Bay on March 4th, 2016.
We sighted first two birds trying to feed on him, when we approched the birds flew away. Why does he died? He doesn't seem squashed by cars or big trucks. ... pente.html
Thanks in advance.

To me it looks like a Boomslang but I am not an expert
