Sighting: Sand Snake Kill in Camp
Location: Kalahari Plains Camp, Central Kalahari, Botswana
Date: 10 October 2013

Snakes are one of my personal favourite species, especially when viewing them in their natural environment without disturbing them, so having the opportunity to watch a successful snake hunt was really exciting.
