THWhite Grass Snake

Grass Snake. Illustration by TH White from his own England Have My Bones, 1936
” A female is pouring from behind the sofa. As the floor is of polished wood she gets a poor grip of it ( she prefers the hearth-rug) and elects to decant herself along the angle between wall and floor. Here she can press sideways as well as downwards, and gets a better grip.”
