That's That

As a follow-up to the Slaty-grey Snake and Cane Toad incident, I thought I might have a great sequel when I discovered that Green Tree Ants, Oecophylla smaragdina, were intent on rendering the snake as protein for their nest.

 But it was not to be. Shortly after taking these photos, the snake was seen flying down the track in the beak of a Black Butcherbird, Craticus quoyi, never to be seen again Pity.
