No head shot, I'm thinking this snake could just be an interesting ladies belt, mind you my mate Denz Mellin's dog found a near dead six foot python by the canal in Leicester one Christmas poor thing. My money is on a garter snake..... What you didnt see that one coming? True about my mates dog though.

I guess the owner may have behaved like this lot on discovery of said snake, although I hope he/she would have had more sympathetic mates than the laughing camera man!

Crap that made me jump!

A bit off thread I grant you, but my Father in Law is an Australian Geophysicist, and this pdf is of a series of photos he shot of a snake v lizard thing, at the Pilbara Mine, Western Australia in August 2009.

There was only ever going to be one winner.

Now that's amazing and it never ceases to amaze me how large they can unhinge their jaws to open their mouth.

Forget the Coastguard!!! More like the Guinness Book of Records, like Telco Will says for the fastest swimmer
