Any idea how I can get him to move along?
We had an issue with Cape Cobras at work for years. There were mice that lived in the mole tunnels, and that attracted the snakes.

One guy popped a few mothballs in the holes, problem gone.

I'll give it a try.I'm sure he has gone into hybernation. These guys eat frogs. Maybe I should rig up a frog trap. The problem is, I store all my scrap metal and all crap in there. To move everything is going to take a good part of a day.

4) Blinde slang (Bibron's blind snake / Afrotyphlops bibronii), Klein Pella, Boesmanland. This was an odd bugger, I thought it was a massive earthworm or something until I took a closer look and saw it had scales. It was also incredibly difficult to get a decent photo as he was moving fast.

Almost step on this juvenile earlier in the week. I walked into the garage in the dark and next moment heard a hissing sound next to my foot.

It was still chilly and the cement very cold so he was in no hurry to get away.

This might sound stupid but being a city boy I have never seen something like that. What species is that.

I heard those things are super intelligent and can be trained. I love the looks of it. Pure dinosaur.

You may wonder why Iíve posted another picture of a carpet python (Morelia spilota) which I saw between Mt Charlton and Broken River and what it has to do with the next hedgehog looking animal which I often see as road kill when I cycle to Proserpine dam.  The three things that hold the snake, the echidnae and the drive to Broken river to see Platypus in the wild, is eggs.
 
The platypus and the echidnae inhabit that lost turn in mammal evolution (monotremes) that had fur, warm blood, lizard and bird like features such as  fixed hips and a beak but most importantly like snakes they breed by laying eggs and the resulting puggle lives in its mothers belly for the next few months.

By the way, platypus are ridiculously cute little things and you can spend quite a bit of time watching their antics.
