Postby Hellemar » Fri Sep 01, 2006 9:58 am

Hi...


I´m still not sure about what I got, but I was looking for information of Psammophis mossambicus at The EMBL-Reptile Database, but there was none...
So can anyone help me out with some questionmarks...


Dorsal scale count ?

Common name ?

Distribution area ?

Terra Typica ?

Adult length ?
