Any idea how I can get him to move along?
We had an issue with Cape Cobras at work for years. There were mice that lived in the mole tunnels, and that attracted the snakes.

One guy popped a few mothballs in the holes, problem gone.

I'll give it a try.I'm sure he has gone into hybernation. These guys eat frogs. Maybe I should rig up a frog trap. The problem is, I store all my scrap metal and all crap in there. To move everything is going to take a good part of a day.

4) Blinde slang (Bibron's blind snake / Afrotyphlops bibronii), Klein Pella, Boesmanland. This was an odd bugger, I thought it was a massive earthworm or something until I took a closer look and saw it had scales. It was also incredibly difficult to get a decent photo as he was moving fast.

Almost step on this juvenile earlier in the week. I walked into the garage in the dark and next moment heard a hissing sound next to my foot.

It was still chilly and the cement very cold so he was in no hurry to get away.

This might sound stupid but being a city boy I have never seen something like that. What species is that.

I heard those things are super intelligent and can be trained. I love the looks of it. Pure dinosaur.
