Hello Bloggers
We're in Deshaies, Guadeloupe and we're off to Antigua tomorrow morning (Monday 19th).
This is an extra blog to help identify a snake which Alex saw on Ilet a Cabrit in Les Saintes, Guadeloupe. Officially there are no snakes in Guadeloupe, but this one was about 5 feet long and similar in appearance to smaller (1 to 2 feet) ones we've seen there.
We've tried googling for it but with no success, so over to you. The photo shows about 4 feet of the thing with its head out of shot unfortunately.
Any ideas?
George, Michael and Alex
