When was the last time you met up with a dangerous wild animal and had the chance to admire it for it's absolute beauty?
Today I met a Green Mamba. It was on the ground which is apparently highly unusual. They usually hang out in trees and are green so they are difficult to see. Also they are highly elusive but this chap just checked me out while tasting the air with his tongue. The beauty of this snake was incredible and I feel honoured to have met one in person and that it allowed me to look at it for quite some time. I had an overwhelming urge to reach out to it but of course that would have been stupid. I didn't have my cellphone on me so I couldn't take a picture, Dammit !!! This snake just oozed character , beautiful it was !
