For some reason the bottom picture didn't upload properly. It's a fair size - About 1.4m. Very nice and fat though

Not bad for Kimberley ;)
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Wow, you learn something new every day. I never knew relaxing was part of N. nivea behavior.

Nasicornis you right, most of them never relax. This guy is cooked. I tired him out for about 5 mins before I took the photo.

We released it yesterday. Looking at the tail I presumed it was a male.

I really need a set of tubes and a probe set! Help anyone?

Ask Mr Els from Outshoorn - I think he sells tubes!
