what a welcome back present!! i visited my folks just to see how all my hatchlings were doing coz they looked after the eggs while i was away in Zim. i just dropped in by them for 2 days, and who wouldve thought, my old man gives me a call saying theres a cobra in a office near his and i must come and pick it up.

off i went expecting the usual capey, but too my surpise it was a coral snake. a first for me so i was quite chuffed. also i thought the were duller up north, but this little fellow was a stunner



Thanx for looking
