African House Snake Care Sheet

Natural History

African house snakes are a relatively small species of brown snake found across Africa. They are normally a dark brown colour with thin stripes of white or a creamy colour running from the head all the way along the body. The females typically grow to 120cm with a maximum recorded length of 150cm while the males are normally only around 60cm long.

They are considered completely harmless and are very commonly found around towns in sub-saharan Africa.
