Rosemary, you do seem to be a bit of a snake magnet. :big_eyes: I am wondering what dinner guests I might have overlooked.

That is just beautiful .... I'm very sure the wife would not agree, most energetically. Working on her reptile appreciation skills, but it's a slow thing
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.

All the best with getting your wife to like reptiles. All good things come with time, so persevere. :thumbs_up:

Today when I made my booking for a few days at Tamboti, I could not help to think about the Marbled Tree snake I found in the rolled up window cover of my tent a few years ago... and if I will be happy to find another one that way??? :hmz:

I have always thought those window covers look like they could be a nice home for a snake. :naughty:

Was the snake on the inside window cover or the outside window cover? :hmz:
