Shame the poor guy has been battered by life, and probably other males too. Hope you look after him nicely and give him a good retirement.

Bushviper, this fellow fell down a old windmill hole, which is about 4m deep, i climbed down to get him out.! He was full of ticks, so i gave him a dip with 50%frontline and 50% water, and it has helped so far! He is slowly starting to look better, and nearly hydrated! I think with a shed or two he is bound to look better! He took his first rat today so im sure he will do fine!

He is very docile, and only hisses abit when you want to pick him up, other than that he has not attempted to bite yet!

Nice one David!... Even though he looks a bit battered (typically) I am happy he took a rat for you!
