Snake in the grass





This created quite a storm in the early morning teacup !

Agreed it wasn't the snake itself but the skin it had shed , yet it was quite fascinating .

Do click on the pictures to take a good look .

You can even see the 'eyes' of the molting !

The picture showing the belly having a slight rip truly needs to be enlarged to see just how fragile and transparent the skin is .
