Found this out in Ruimsig yesterday. I've never seen one before, but they're pretty cool!

It is amazing how many people think these are snakes.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Until I noticed the head and "slime trail" I thought maybe it was some type of Typhlopidae. I found some pictures of different/multi-coloured ones on the net, do we get any of those in SA?
