I was excited when I caught this egg-eater at school as it was a different colour morph to the ones I had caught before. Once again, I improvised a studio in my garden and took several shots of it before releasing it in the garden. I love the way this species curls on itself to make noise rubbing its scales together to try and impress a potential threat- in this case, me!
