For a year a very thin carpet snake has lived amongst the pineapples. Every sunny day it would stretch in the sun but never seemed to find anything to swallow. 5 weeks ago, a much darker and healthy carpet snake, pictured below, arrived and would stretch in the morning winter sun alongside the thin permanent resident. Last week the thin snake disappeared. I thought at first it had died but couldn’t find its body. Then I spied the recent arrival coiled up looking a little rounded. I had no idea this might happen.
4 days later another larger snake appeared. The invader to the left.
Escaping the new comer.
