Ones that size are such a pleasure to keep. Nice set of photos too.

Thanks everyone. She had me sitting there for an hour & a half just waiting to get the shell regurge shots. Not that I minded at all, fascinating to watch...

very cool shots! Awesome to feed from the hand.
You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it’ll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it’s not even funny.
