Black Desert Cobra (Walterinnesia aegyptia) פתן שחור

This image was taken during a "water holes" expedition.

 

In this expedition, we went down into ancient water collection holes just before winter arrives.

 

A lot of animals fall into these holes and get stuck there, if they remain stuck there at winter time they will surly die.

 

All the animals were rescued and then set free.

 

Taken November 10th, 2007, Southern Judia Desert, Israel.
