Snake: Black File Snake

Unread post by Karin Mitton »

Uncommon and secretive, this snake is found in lowland forest and moist savanna.
It is nocturnal and feeds mostly on skinks and lizards, but will take frogs as well.
Their scales are strongly keeled, and they feel very different to the touch than other snakes.
Harmless to humans.
