Also witnessed a whole flock of birds going apeshit on a boomslang in the trees.  Good early warning system?

The snakes I commonly see on the Western Cape roads are:
1. Pofadder (usually less than 75cm)
2. Molslang (big black mothers, 1.5m)

Never seen a Boomslang or Rinkhals in the flesh, but from the pictures the boomslang is that skinny green oke with the big black eyeballs, and the Rinkhals is that blueish black guy (and I presume they are dangerous fellows)

Have heard you get Tabakrollertjies, anyone have some pics?

Snake in tree snacking on birds = Boomslang/Treesnake :biggrin:
The two do get confused as they are similarly marked. Looks more like a genuine Boomslang to me though.

Def a male boomslang and we get them fairly often...not too fussed as they are very timid and stay away from people unlike puffies - they seem to die when they show up! ;D

Edgy cool photo!
So at the talk we had on Tuesday there were a lot of "myths" busted - some even suprised me.
Interesting that you kill puffies - although they are our fastest striking snake they are pretty lazy so unless stood on will not attack you. The guy had one with him for us to see - about 1m long but it just lay at his feet totally uninterested in us - with a bit of engouragement he got it to move back into its tool tube house - sorry didn't take any photo's but I was supprised just how docile it was.
