The Angola green snake can be identified by the black skin between its scales, its blue spots, round pupils, an excellent climbing ability and a diurnal lifestyle. It grows to an average length of 1 meter and a maximum length of 1.2 meters.
Found in central Namibia, the Caprivi strip, northern Botswana, eastern Zimbabwe, west Mozambique and the Mozambique / South Africa border. Its favoured habitats are lowland forest and the edges of arid savanna.
I spotted this at the Wonderview lookout point. There was quite a few people around at times. I was really surprised to see this snake just slither by.
