We got back to Barry's Place around 15:30 and spent the afternoon doing photography and processing specimens.

In the evening Caitlin, Laca and Katie went out herping the roads. A couple of hours later they returned with another bashed Macklot's water python (Liasis mackloti mackloti) and two Common wolfsnakes (Lycodon capucinus), one live, one dead. The dead snakes needed to be photographed, documented and preserved as museum vouchers before they deteriorated, so it meant a fairly late night for those of us still up.
