Entered one of the tents after heavy rainfalls.

Description

I have seen two specimens at this location, one deceased adult and one living neonate (both pictured here), both found in the same yard, the live snake was found just beside a large pot. The deceased snake was found in a small ditch I had dug around the circumference of a tree trunk I was excavating, it was dried and had other physical damage.
