    Re: Snake ID please.

    The Natal spotted bush snake is very much thinner, smaller, and very graceful with a very small head.

    Most of you folk are doing the 4x4 tracks. We have our own challenge of getting to the campsite & back and don't have to pay extra for it since it is not a trail, yes?
