Kwa-Zulu Natal snake rescuer, Nick Evans had a nice surprise when he found two house snakes snuggling.
Evans said on Facebook that he went to remove a Brown House Snake from under some roof tiles only to find it with another.
“The larger specimen was not happy with being disturbed, especially being in the blue (about to shed), and gave me a cheeky bite. Both were frozen, although still very lively,” said Evans.
Evans said though he found these two snuggling it’s not mating season for them- not that he knows of.
“Female House Snakes are generally a fair size bigger than males. Notice on the lighter coloured specimen, the lines on its head, and patterns near the top half,” added Evans.
