Dwarf Beaked Snake
Snakes | Namibia
Introduction: This naughty little creature, the dwarf beaked snake (Dispina multiaculata) hides beneath stones or in loose sand at the base of bushes, ready in wait to ambush unsuspecting lizards on the way home after a hard day at the office. They are a fairly docile sort of creature, but will coil up when threatened, imitating the horned adder.
Diet: Barking geckos, lizards and small lacertids.
Colouring: The colour of the back varies from grey and pinkish-brown with rows of darker blotches that join to form crossbars. A V-shape adorns the back of the neck and the head has an eye-stripe. The belly is white to pink-cream.
Breeding: Females lay 2 to 4 eggs. They hatch after 7 or 8 weeks.
Size: Max SVL male, 321mm, 323mm female.
