There is a resident pair of these snakes in my garden that I see regularly. I have posted this same snake earlier this year with a Grey-headed Sparrow. Has a yellow scale above its right eye. It hunts over my bird table in the garden.

African striped weasel 3 compressed


The dogs barked this creature up a tree in the night and it was still taking refuge there in the morning. By this time the weavers were attacking it as it was in a tree next to their nesting tree. It did not appear very comfortable climbing and was very slow in descending once the dogs were locked away. I had to encourage it down the tree and it scuttled into the shubbery and remains hiding under a rock. It can be heard grumbling when the dogs approach. I think it is a youngster - it is smaller than the recorded adult size.

Will let her lay and eat before releasing.

One of two flocks currently residing in the Springbok area. This specific flock consists of two individuals, while the other consists of 4 individuals. They seem to be roosting in Pine trees (Pinus sp) in town.

Their presence in the area is in all probability linked to the presence of anthropogenically maintained gardens and lawns. They also spend some time in the man-made impoundments in the Springbokfontein riverbed.
