Royal it is !
The weather wasn’t really good yesterday so I went a little north to a small Tropical Zoo called “De Berkenhof”. Usually they have a lot of butterflies but this time of year it’s mostly reptiles and orchids. (Which is just as well because butterflies give me the shivers). I absolutely adore snakes, though. One of the girls working there was kind enough to take a Royal Python out of its glass home – or rather cage . It was very alert, noticing every movement any of us made, and ready to strike if someone came too close. I know this isn’t Wildlife but I can’t afford to go to Africa, yet. And isn’t it absolutely, positively, gorgeously beautiful ?
