But, nonetheless, in the last 2 weeks I have come across the following, and again, having limited internet access, I thought I would throw it out there to our blog readers, to see if anyone could identify the following creatures. Hank, you still with us?
The following was about 12 inches long and moved very quickly (like a snake), but from what I could tell it had no face. When we asked our house helper he seemed to be trying to tell us that it had a mouth on each end of it's body and that if it got close to you, it would latch on and "suck". Perhaps some kind of fast moving, extra large leech?
The second one is definitely a snake, but I don't know what kind. On my way home from work last week I saw some of the workmen standing around this small snake that they had just killed. Unfortunately, they seem to have bashed in it's head, making identification more difficult, but I thought perhaps someone could identify it based on it's markings.
