I was so excited to see this snake on my hike yesterday. Despite being one of the fastest snakes in the Middle East, it was so cooperative and sat still for several minutes while I took photos. And then it decided to move. It slowly turned only a couple of inches before it slid right off the cliff. (A good reminder that it could be me if I don't watch my steps!) He landed in the wadi below and slithered off behind a plant and into the rocks. The last photo shows me looking at the snake and the cliff he slid off.
