Re-living the Past #14 – My first reptile photo

Ragtag Daily Prompt Monday: Coil

One day I was taking my recycling to the old wool bale bags where I stored my recycling. Lifting the flap I found a small Red-naped Snake in a coil. This photo was first posted in October 2013.

Weakly venomous but considered harmless due to inoffensive nature and reluctance to bite. They grow to about 35cm and feed mainly on small skinks and are nocturnal. This one was happy to scoot away from my camera.
