If you are unsure of the identification of a snake you have observed, you can ask an expert for snake identification by uploading a photo to the Snakes of Namibia facebook page.
You can also get help from their amazing album of infographics of the common snake species in Namibia.
The facebook page also has contact details for snake catchers - people who are experienced in catching and removing snakes - throughout the country.
In the case of a snake bite, email "snakebite" to firstname.lastname@example.org. Namibia's snakebite expert - Dr Buys - will respond immediately.
