Causes rhombeatus - Causes rhombeatus - Rhombic Night Adder

Found in Umhlanga , Kwa Zulu Natal.


The Rhombic Night adder is found all along South Africa's east coast (except for the Western cape). It is also present in Mpumalanga, Gauteng, Limpopo and the Free State (only a very small isolated population). This snake has also been found in Swaziland, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and on the border of Botswana and Namibia (in the Caprivi strip). This snake is often found in moist Savanna, lowland forest and fynbos; These areas are favoured because the are relatively damp and have high concentrations of the snakes prey.
