The hazards of an office job in the bush...
Makuleke's resident Spotted bush snake is getting quite cosy in the camp's office. The other day Dee Lawson was sitting in the office when all of a sudden a Foam Nest Frog leaps from behind her onto the screen of her laptop

At the same time, she heard and felt a thud at her feet, only to look down to see a rather disappointed Spotted Bush Snake. Clearly, he had gone for the frog, who has been residing on the handle of the filing drawer for a few weeks now.

There's never a dull moment in the bush!
