Nice Mongoose. Thanks for sharing.

I dont think it's too dull! I like it's cryptic coloration!

Is she big?

Nice puff-adder there Mongoose! Look at the base of his tail - its very swollen - looks like a stud you got there!

Tell us about the catch, or was it a call out?

Craig, think he could of mated?

What time of year do they copulate?

This snake was on a call out, my boss at teh museum caught him in town at the Kimberley club.. A while ago i told her, a friend of mine is looking for certain species, as they are making a meerkat document in Kimberley and shes sms'd me asking me if im interested..
