    He went back in the garden next to the lapa where he was found, hopefully he makes a dent in my rampant lizard population.

    That's the thing with snakes, they are only to be found where there is a good food supply and often snakes will have a specific preference, IE egg eaters, rat snakes and so on.

    Good for you, let the little fellow eat his fill. More beneficial to you than chucking him out.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    And going waaay off topic..the song was written by Solomon Linda who passed not getting a cent for his work. I read somewhere the family are/ were fighting for the royalties earned from the use of it. I have an original recording somewhere by the way.
