Painted Mock Viper - Psammodynastes pictus This orange/brown variation of Painted Mock Viper - Psammodynastes pictus is the one that is more often seen at the Park.  This particular one was found on the same bush on the side of a pond that has a lot of frogs.  It was at the same spot at night for the whole duration of 6 nights I was there.  During day time, it probably went under the bushes to hide.  <br />

This is another form/variation of the same species seen at the same location :<br />
