Python Skeleton

This beautiful exhibit has been on display at the San Diego Zoo for many years. I've been so impressed by the beauty of this snake skeleton, that years ago, after I killed a rattlesnake in my driveway, I put the body in my cactus garden so that the ants and beetles could strip it down to a skeleton. My brilliant plan failed because the coyotes came the same night, and ripped the carcass to pieces and ate most of the snake. Oh, well.

 

More of my animal pictures can be seen at my San Diego Zoo set. www.flickr.com/photos/9422878@N08/sets/72157621078764843/...
