Donner, bliksem!

Bang vir die jong mambas, hulle is nie so slim soos die groot ouer toppies wat weet hoe om om mense te lewe nie.

So 'n jonge het 2 van ons brakkies doodgepik op die plaas waar ek groot geword het   :'(

We get these quite often in the house. It's a Natal water snake. I saw Edgy posted a pic of one a few pages back.
I found an easy way to get them out of my garage. Gas :biggrin: They scatter when I open the gas bottle and blow gas at them.

Had a few of these in yard as well. Herald. The dogs got a nip into this one before I could stop them. I think he was ok though.

They do tend to be a lot more bedonderd when they are shedding.
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

So, I get home late last night and see this "tree branch" in the road, just as you enter our farm.
Immediately demoerin because we have had some night walkers recently, with he implied theft/ damage.

Gathering my wits and summoning the guardian Brannas angel, I get out to investigate.

Pretty little 3 meter specimen.
She was quite placid and curios as to this staggering dickwad paparazzi twat.
