Gecko Fight
I had set out to photograph birds near my home when the croaking and hissing of a red-spotted tokay gecko caught my attention. I watched the drama for nearly five minutes until the golden tree snake eventually squeezed the gecko to death

Tokay geckos are large, feisty and vocal. They are the preferred prey of golden tree snakes, one of five species of flying snake, the only limbless animals that can ‘fly’ through the air.

تحضّرتُ لتصوير الطيور بالقرب من منزلي، حين لفت انتباهي نعيق أبو بريص مرقّط بالأحمر. وبعد حوالي خمس دقائق من القتال، تمكّنت أفعى الأشجار الذهبيّة من أبو بريص فعصرته حتّى الموت.

يتمتّع أبو بريص توكاي بحجمٍ كبير وطبيعةٍ مقاتلة ويُصدر أصواتاً عالية، كما أنّه الفريسة المفضّلة لدى أفاعي الأشجار الذهبية، التي تعتبرُ واحدة من خمسة أنواع من الأفاعي الطائرة، وهي الحيوانات الوحيدة التي تتمكّن من "الطيران" من دون أطراف.
