Daintree River Report 4th August, 2008

The crocs have been great as usual due to the sunny days. The snakes went into a mini hibernation due to the very cool nights and were quite hard to find. Luckily we had one very reliable 1 ½ m tree snake shedding its skin. When they are shedding, they cannot see very well as the skin is lifting off their whole body including the eyes, so the vision goes blurry.
Spring seems to be in the air early as the Orioles are using their mating call and we saw four happy snakes on top of each other today.
