‘King of Provence’, Montpellier snake documentary

I thought I would share this fantastic documentary about my favourite snake (in French) about the life of the Montpellier snake (Malpolon monspessulanus). Filmed in the south of France it gives a great insight into the life cycle of this Mediterranean species which has fascinated me since I was very young. I have fond memories of living in the south of France myself and searching for these snakes.

  1. Thanks for that, a charismatic reptile and a European one at that. A quite brilliant film about a snake most of us will only see dead on the road.
