Summer Officially Here
Well, not exactly what you expected, hey? Here in our neighbourhood a Cape Cobra as visitor is a reality! This one must have been killed by our dog between seven and nine o'clock when I found it dead in our garden! David was out there this morning watering and did not see it!
It is about 75cm long and 15mm in diameter. I took photo's of it next to a 1 meter, 20mm pvc pipe for proportions. It is a beautiful yellow copper colour with an orange maybe even red copper stripe down it's back and the belly is like a pearl.
Thank goodness for dogs even though they can sometimes be a nuisance!
