Thanks. This is one of the most elusive creatures found in kruger and a permanent fixture on my wishlist.

Ok :think: :hmz: which two snakes, found in south africa, move with rectilinear motion as opposed to the more common serpentine motion?

Same answer as you Philip - sure about the python but about 95% sure about the puff adder as they are pretty damn slow at moving at all :lol:
How was your first exam Sleepyowl?

Must try to learn how to post pics here as we have a really lovely pic of an adorable barred owl which we took this weekend. It was the cutest little person ever

I'm doing a post graduate certificate in education. Thanks.

To post pics, you have to create an account on a photo hosting website, like photobucket. Then copy the imgcode shown by the picture and paste it in your post. If you want to try and you need some help, pm me. :) I'd love to see the pics.

Thanks Sleepy and vinkie. Will have to try it sometime, but I am rather technically challenged :redface: Sure my granddaughter would be able to do it in a matter of minutes :?

In the meantime here is a question for you:
If I were a human I might be found in a circus.
I can take several years to resemble my parents.
When I am young I am not easily identified and can be confused with another species.
