SOUTHERN BURROWING ASP (Atractaspis bibronii): SPECIES ACCOUNT

Most African burrowing snakes live in the central and southern regions of Africa, known as sub-Saharan Africa, but a few make their homes in Israel or in Jordan.

Just as their name suggests, this group of snakes likes to live in burrows, or tunnels, underground. They are especially fond of sandy soils. Some like the damp soil of lowland forests, but others can live quite well in the drier sands of grasslands and areas that are almost desertlike.

A few species of African burrowing snake live in very small areas, but no species is endangered or threatened.
