Angolan Garter Snake is a small mildly venomous snake. The juvenile has black and white bands of a similar width. With age the white bands turn black from the middle outward leaving 2 pale bands along the edge of what was 1 broad white band. It has a more rounded snout than the Sunevall’s Garter Snake which also occurs in northern Botswana. Although venomous this snake is reluctant to bite. They feed on other snakes including their own species as well as geckos, skinks etc.
