Incidentally, I'm realizing what a good thing it is I never had decent internet coverage in the field. If I'd been able to read about scary, deadly creatures that inhabited the very areas where I was working I'd have behaved way stupidly. Entertainingly so, perhaps, but way stupidly. Like, keeping a broom by my cot to sweep the area for snakes and scorpions before putting my feet on the floor stupidly.
Also, does anyone else think that snake in the picture has an accent?
