    A large HD version of this movie is available at vimeo.com/62258055 —- A 1m long SPOTTED BUSH SNAKE (non-venomous) was seen before lunchtime in the rafters of the dining area at Zingela bush camp beside the Tugela River, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, on Saturday 12 January 2013. The snake discovered a very large and battle-worn Wahlberg’s Velvet gecko (which I had seen a few times in the area previously). After attacking the gecko in the rafters, the snake and its prey fell to the floor. It’s at that moment, with the gecko retaliating, that I arrived with my movie camera. The whole event lasted about 40 minutes. This is a very tightly edited 10-minute movie of the event with most of the battle for survival by the gecko shown, and a VERY shortened conclusion. The retaliation of the gecko was both a natural reaction (as geckos do) as well as highly intelligent by clamping the snake’s mouth closed, and by holding the snake behind its head. Don’t ignore the agility of the gecko to avoid being bitten on its head. (The snake has variously been thought to be a Philothamnus hoplogaster [green water snake] or a P natalensis [Natal green snake] or *even* a P angolensis [Angola green snake] but it is most likely to be a P semivariegatus [spotted bush snake]!)
