    Great photos of some varied and beautiful flora and fauna. I assume the snake is non-venomous? AL

    I'm sure you could! And the snake would not be an obstacle

    You're right! They say it is a female because the male would not have had such a long tongue....joke! It's a male, and it is non-poisonous snake.
