Concerning the Reptiles, I found 2 Mabuya, I believe that one of them is the very common M. africana, and the other seems to be interesting. 2 Gekkonidae, 3 Ophidia, one of them beeing a Typhlops, probably T. newtonii, one Dendrophis, that must be D. Jamesonii.

Concerning the mamba:
"After the reception of your precious papers on the natural History of these islands, with the good image that you give of Dendraspis Jamesoni, I could convince myself that my snakes have nothing to do with that species."
