Emerald eye by InsaneGelfling Emerald eye by InsaneGelfling
This image shows the different colours of the snakes main body and tail very well I think. I love the way it was curled back round on itself to rest on its tail.

Red tailed rat snake.
Paignton Zoo.

I hereby give ~DeviantHerps permission to display this deviation in their club gallery.

A gouache painting of this image was done by *DundalkChild I think she did a great job. Go check it out.

Looks like it's grinning! The vibrant green makes a fascinating contrast to the silver. Is this really just one snake?
You're really lucky - this is a great shot, of a beautiful subject.

Thanks very much. The contrast of colours is great, the reddy silver tail is what gives the snake its name. They have about five at Paignton Zoo and although they are only about an inch in diameter they are about 1 metre to 1.5 metres long. They are fascinating snakes.

Wonderful composition. When I looked at the thumbnail, I was expecting to see that this was a drawing. Like someone else mentioned, the eye doesn't look real :-)
