This is a new species of snake that we recently found on Tumaren. It is a Desert Black-headed Snake (Micrelaps vaillanti or so we think. Exciting to find new species after all these years hiking this bush.This entry was posted in Natural History and tagged ecology, kenya snakes, natural history, snake on .
Found this young snake under one of our flys the other day as we were taking down camp. Not such a great picture but if anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.
I suppose this image may appear too small on the blog for IDing. Please write should a snake person out there want a larger image.This entry was posted in Conservation and tagged herpetology, laikipia, laikipia conservation, snake on .
