This naughty little snake [ about 40cm / 15 inches long] bit the guy who helped me get the garden ready for winter on his finger yesterday !! Fortunately it is not poisonous Smile It is called a Twakroller [ Tobacco roller] in the local vernacular because it rolls itself up when in danger. We found three snakes yesterday Smile Must be the last of the warm weather driving them out to get a last bit before their winter sleep Smile
V2 - Fully coiled up
Thanx so much for your votes and comments on the YELLOWTAIL fish in the bucket - much appreciated !
Have a great midweek break Smile
