I closed my eyes and heard a hybrid of the two: "When looking at your two paws, as soon as you have decided which of them is the right one, then you can be sure the other one is the also, the Puff Adder collects solar power very efficiently"

That is one magnificent & beautiful serpent.
Yes it does look rather large, but it’s an illusion. However puff adders do have pretty thick bodies.

We grew up with Sir David Attenborough I can say that his documentaries and the books written and illustrated by Jhon Leigh Pemberton (Ladybird series) made me what I became : animal doctor, illustrator and nature lover.

Interestingly enough I actually got to work with the large croc they mention there, Gomek, while he was in the care of Arthur Jones. He was HUGE!! Biggest I've ever seen. Oh, Gomek was a Salt Water croc from Australia.

Haha, I'd never thought that before. I love David Attenborough even more now.
