It is a Sand Racer, Psammophis sp., maybe P. mossambicus

Hello!

Thanks for your answer

When I google the Sand Racer snake it redirects me to the Schokari sand racer, which is not found in Namibia.

I also checked the Psammophis Mossambicus, but it looks different in the pictures. Maybe I'm wrong

Are you sure about the answer?

Thank you anyway!
Marc

It looks like a very young individual and I am quite sure it is a Psammophis, and mossambicus is the only unicolored down there.
