Snakes Alive

We had the most amazing visitor to our garden a couple of days ago.

This beautiful python is either living in our garden wood shed or just visitng for a couple of snacks. We have to now be more careful in letting Max out alone - as he would make a great meal for this beautiful snake.

Relaxed slow, slithers along the fence - at least 8' long
Dad called me down with my camera and Mum had hers, so we took lots of photos, the snake was quite placid until Mum stopped thinking.

I think I will reach out and touch you!  The snake head is hidden in the leaves, but within micro-seconds it was curled up and ready to strike.

The length of the curled part of the snake was at least 4' enough to reach out and take a nasty bite.

Mum then decided that discretion was the better part of valour and moved away.
