Dasypeltis is a genus of colubrid snakes. It is one of only two taxonomic groups of snakes known to have adapted to feed exclusively on eggs. Dasypeltis are non-venomous and found throughout the continent of Africa, primarily in forested or wooded habitats that are also home to numerous species of birds.

As you’ve likely guessed, African egg-eating snakes are found in Africa. They live all over the continent, in forested areas. The genus Dasypeltis is a widely distributed group of snakes that occur, with the exception of deserts, all over Africa and in the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula. There are thirteen species and one subspecies of which I will give a summarizing description here. This will be complemented by personal experiences with their keeping and breeding.   Hoser, Raymond.
