Back to The Meerkat Magic Conservation Project - helping to conserve Wild Meerkats and Mongooses since 1993!

Meet Ziziphus the deadly venomous Puff adder snake and Meerkat and Mongoose predator!

Meet one of my younger puff adder snake friends (Bitis arietans) I call Ziziphus who lives on the reserve with me:

I was super lucky again to see one of my beautiful puff adder friends on my reserve again. I call this lovely reptile Ziziphus after a wild Kalahari Meerkat I observed for seven years as she survived a bite from a puff adder on her tail.

Ziziphus is a resident reserve snake who has favourite sunning places next to a walking trail of mine. What a treat to see such a magnificent creature again.

This was sadly for me a very brief encounter and as usual by being aware of reserve wildlife, they do not get aggressive and attack if they are respected.

All snakes are protected in The Meerkat Magic Valley Reserve of The Meerkat Magic Conservation Project, and so is their habitat.
