I do hope that Mac Adder has not run away. :wink:

This is very exciting.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Yup def an egg eater.... got the most incredible mouths.....have a look around for pics of one actually eating an egg as their skin stretches out so that the scales are separate. Amazing little snakes but can be quite aggressive even though theyre pretty harmless :)
