While camping at Ezemvelo Nature Reserve near Bronkhorstspruit a few weeks ago, we noticed a frog which appeared to be stuck between a few rocks. Having a closer look we came across the following amazing scene:

It took the snake about 5 minutes before its venom finally killed the frog. When we returned about 40 minutes later, the snake, jaws unlocked, had already managed to stuff in half of his breakfast!

We suspect it is an Olive Grass Snake, but if anyone can help with the identification of both predator and prey it will be great!
