An East African egg-eating snake (Dasypeltis medici) at Prague Zoo. This species lives along the coastal forests of eastern Africa and eats nothing but bird eggs. This means it is able to feed heavily during the bird nesting season of two to three months, then often will go without eating for the rest of the year until the birds nest again.
