Good day Guys.

Moderators Feel free to Remove this if there is already talk of this.

I flickered through the Local newspaper this Morning whilst having my Morning Coffee and There was a Rather strange article.

Here are some pictures of the Snake.

I have tried to identify it. many Suspects.. but nothing i can be 100% sure of.. also might be some morph of an exotic. I cant be sure.

Hope the pics help. If any one wants I can upload the full article.

My first thought was it looked like some type of Telescopus.
Not a great photo.

Looks a bit like a Spotted House Snake with a squashed head.

Looks like the rare East Rand Rubbersteker!
