RETICULATED PYTHON - Python reticulatus

VERTVET MONKEY -
Chlorocebus sabaceus
IMAGE REF: UKN003

The artist has modelled the mouth on a that of venomous snake, not knowing that pythons do not have fangs, just rows of backward facing, needle-sharp teeth. The background shading of the sky shows the printer's inking ball shadow rings typical of the period. It has not  been possible completely to remove this artefact. The above image shows the full extent of this effect.
