Description

how many snakes?


Sunning itself directly below viewpoint. Initially thought were two snakes, the one swallowing the other, as we tried to peer through the thin screening vegetation. Big (over 2m estimated), shiny fat fella only briefly showed its head (last pic) when moving off slowly into thicker bush when it detected vibrations of a couple stepping onto the platform 3m above it.
