“It was a worrying situation. Today, the mamba was out basking. I had a few commitments before I could go but soon made it there. I was hoping it was in a similar situation, but it wasn't. In fact, it was in the last place I wanted it to be along the river! I was hoping to stay well away from there! The news got worse for me. The only, or should I say, the best way, to approach it, would be from below. That meant climbing a waterfall! I like visiting and climbing around waterfalls, looking for frogs. Not when they're in this condition though."
