Me thinks it's a Skaapsteker.

Where did you see it?

Dont think its a skaapsteker. Think KeithK is right about it being a Grass snake/Whip snake, but I dont know for sure.

For now we call it a  Tuinslang  :biggrin:

Helped this chap across the road yesterday. On the road to Highover where the kzn bash was held.
He seemed very slow, but it was rather cold that day.
