A night adder subtracting from the frog population! This was in my veggie garden yesterday. I'm amazed that such a big toad can fit inside such a small snake (about 40cm).

Lovely pic  :thumleft:

So often these animals are killed because people don't know them or understand them. I know, I used to kill every snake I saw too. But later in life I learned a bit more about them, and how much good they actually do, and now it will be a very unusual occasion that I will kill a snake, any snake.

That adder's eyes are almost bigger than its tummy  :imaposer:

I presume the snake's throat muscles must be crushing the frogs skeleton on the way in?

I just read a thread on The 4x4 community forum about Mambas striking at cars etc on dirt roads, What if youre on a bike? Youre pretty screwed. Has anyone ever had an encounter?

I presume so too, a lot of constricting going on. But that frog also has quite a bit of air inside it too, so a lot of that will just be squeezed out.

I think The Badger had one go for him in the Inanda valley last year. It missed. Or maybe The Badgers boots smelled so bad, it decided not to bother.

Another reason why I must ride with my long boots.  Although heavy, much better than getting pikked...  :peepwall:

I have had a Cape Cobra lunge at me near Gannaga Pass in the Tankwa.
My Sidi Crossfire probably gave him toothache  :imaposer:

Klein Nagadder op die plot.

Let op die vaal oŽ. Dit gebeur net voor hul vervel.

Dan n vraag, is daar n kenner op skerpioene op die bladsy?

Ek weet nie van hier nie, maar op die 4x4community forum het hulle n slang fred, en daar is n paar kenners daar.

Post maar in elk geval jou vraag/foto van die skerpioen hier, dalk is daar n kenner hier  :thumleft:

Wil hom net identifiseer. Baie algemeen tuinplaas omgewing tussen nylstroom en marble hall. Bly onder bas van stompe. die oukie het my amper bygekom toe ek die donkie gestook het.

That is a puffadder. Night adder is smaller and less poisonous.

n maklike manier om die gevaar van n skerpioen te bepaal is die vergelyking in die groote van die knypers teenoor die stert (steker).

Klein knypers en n dik stert is gevaarliker as groot knypers en dun stert.

Maar dis net n "guideline". In SA het ons nie skerpioene wat lewensgevaarlik is vir grootmense nie. Behalwe die een in die Kalahari. Hy's n lelike knap.
