Another very enjoyable video. I can imagine your happiness at lifting those boards and seeing the same snakes, knowing you hadn't scared them off previously. Good luck next time as well.

Watching these videos makes me wish I'd looked for a good spot in Taiwan and put down some boards a couple of years ago. I imagine there are snakes with similar behaviour. Apparently Taiwan is knee-deep in rat snakes, though I never see any.

About how hot is Narita mid-morning, just out of curiosity? You'd be able to fry eggs on boards around Taipei in July.

Thanks guys.

It gets pretty hot in Tokyo. It was 35 C there yesterday. Lows maybe 25. Haven't seen any snakes there lately.

love it, thanks! When I watch the video, I feel that anticipation when you are about to flip such an object, it's like I am about to flip it myself (-:

I was in Yokosuka in November of last year, and unfortunately I had to resort to Birds which can be interesting, especially the Black kites. I was unable to find anything other than Red-ear sliders(Go Figure, they are everywhere). Awesome Video.
