Mole Snakes are found in a variety of habitats, even mountainous regions and deserts, but they’re particularly common in sandy scrub-covered and grassveld regions.

They spend most of their time underground, pushing their way through soft sand in search of moles and other rodents. Viviparous, they give live birth to anywhere between 25-50 babies in late summer.

Interestingly, juvenile (young) mole snakes have a variety of patterns and colors that they lose completely once they reach adulthood.
