Need some help with this one please- thread snake for sure, but which one? Seen at Skukuza. Posting two pics, one showing a distinct darker head. It tried unsuccessfully to burrow into the sand between the paving stones. Thanks!

Taking a very wild guess - Peters' Worm Snake. To be sure one would have to count the scales around the body and tail etc. A harmless specie. Nice find!
