I love snakes as you may have seen from my folder.
I had seven years training in animal husbandry and worked with cousins
of your snake, the puff adder in Africa and death adder in Australia.
Your snake is found in many countries in Europe.
Like most snakes, if you leave them alone they wont harm you.
My only pet is a snake.
Wonderful photograph, I love it.
Keep up the good work.
