Author's notes

When I saw this snake I thought it was a brown but after looking at the images on the computer and noting the flattened body and faint stripes I think it might have been a tiger. It did not seem to be disturbed by my presence (I was a few metres away on the other side of the firetrail) and slowly moved off into the bushes. I estimate it was well over 1 metre but probably shy of 2 metres in length
