Crazy idea

Postby Bushviper » Sun Apr 13, 2008 7:43 pm

Normally when you see a picture like this you will think this person is crazy.

Image

Not even a shot like this puts you at ease. With the neck bending the way it is you would still guess that this is a stiletto snake (Atractaspis bibroni).

Image

However a quick look at the naughty bits will put your mind at ease.

Image

Stiletto snakes do not have a divided anal shield or paired subcaudals. This is a Common purple glossed snake.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

If it was a stilleto he would have to be crazy, I was bitten by a stilletto a few years ago and I can tell you it was not fun!

Agree with you there strecth,
Thanx BV, sure that bit of info would help a lot of people.
Negative thoughts, creates a negative mind. A negative mind, creates a negative person.
A negative person, creates a negative mood, which spoils the power of positivity...
