    BTW, her yellow face and especially her orange eyes really suggest she has some Everglades rat snake genes.
    Just imagining that makes my abs hurt lol! Really fascinating how they move around. Sometimes I watch my BP doing the rectilinear motion to go forward and the movement of his belly muscles reminds me of a caterpillar. They really are fun to observe and learn about!

    You're right, they have several ways of motion...the forward "caterpillar" is sometimes also compared to an accordion.
    We're lucky they don't do sit-ups...they'd really put us to shame, eh? I sure couldn't hang onto a tree that way, no matter how much bark it had, lol.
