Northern dwarf crowned snake

Another shot from the series I took of this Northern dwarf crowned snake grappling with and eventually feeding on the tail of a skink (Glaphyromorphus sp.) after an epic battle which concluded when the skink shed its tail and made a lucky escape. This image was taken immediately after the skink escaped, a smaller part of its broken tail is visible in front of the snake.
