The Tiger Snake under the outbuilding – called Fang!

I was heading around the straw-bale house looking for wildlife to photograph. I saw what I thought was a hosepipe all coiled up at the end of an outbuilding and thought nothing of it. As I approached and got a few feet away it suddenly uncoiled and slithered into a hole under the outbuilding.

I was told it was a Tiger Snake – and a big one. It lived under that building. They are one of the most poisonous and deadly and are known to be aggressive. I called him Fang.

Over the next few days I tried sneaking up on him when he was sunbathing and managed to get a few shots of him. He did not like me getting too close but didn’t seem at all aggressive. But he was big!

What a beautiful specimen!
