This boy was not happy at being found.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

This is Dasypeltis atra, so technically it's not indigenous to SA.
Nice find though, there aren't many records of this species from around Nairobi
If ignorance is bliss, there must be a lot of happy people out there...
