  2. Where was that shot taken, mate?

    [Read: I have no idea, sorry - bet south/southern america somewhere]
  4. I don't believe that even the great ktulu has a slug that big. If you did, you wouldn't be buggerizing around here. You would be a bigger pornstar than Ron Jeremy or John Holmes.
  5. Ktulu ...
    :rofl: :rofl:

  6. Yeah, I'll admit... it's unbelievable.

  7. hahahahh

    Seriously though. It's tiny.

    I can't even satisfy the neighbour's guinea pig.
  8. could be in south africa... Rock Pythons look like that and can be up to 6m long...
  9. To me it looks like a South American Boa Constrictor.

  10. To me it looks like a white box with a red cross....
  11. hmmm, considerably bigger than the three brown snakes i ran over coming down thunderbolts way on tuesday. running over snakes of any description is hair raising at times.

    A) High definition and straight cut pixels, suspected use of line cut tool
    8) Smudge tool : a bit of the "snake" was dragged in the background
    C) A blur, not a clear definition of what the head/tail is. Possible small size head that was blurred to cover the true small size of the snake

    Also, lot's of traces from the use of a "smudge tool"

    While the bottom half of the snake has define "spots", the top half has its spots blurred out, possibly due to the use of a "smudge tool" while an effort was put to blend the snake with the background

    The photo was "take" on a cloudy day, which is very convenient, as shadows is the best way to tell if a photo is fake.

    Any Metadata was erased from the photo. All photos have some metadate, you need to manually go and erase it, which is very very suspicious.

    So it is 99% questionable, 0% proof it is real..

    PS, the $$$ the charge at the entrance is enough to keep me away from them!!! :grin: :grin:

    Figure 7: Our perception is the first line of defense at identifying fake images. The cat is obviously too big for this breed of cat and the man would need to lean backwards more to properly hold a cat of this weight.
  16. Hey guys, I was JUST JOKING!!!!!!!!!!
  17. I Rekon its as real as this.
