I tried several times... I got either an error message or it would just revert to the original. I'll try again in the morning on my laptop. ;)

Hi Karen, this is a beautiful snake. Great information for it too! Would you mind cropping the image so the snake is the focus of the image rather than the instructor? Thank you in advance!
