I know the precessionary caterpillars. These ones move like, and obviously mimics a snake. they are much smaller. is it maybe the early stage of precessionary catepillars?
We believe these are Fungus Gnat larvae from the family Sciaridae. According to iSpot, Fungus Gnats are found in South Africa. According to BugGuide: “Sometimes abundant enough to form a crawling mass of several inches across and several feet long, similar to armyworm migrations.”
