Saw this unfortunate grass snake lying in the lane at the weekend. I got my mate to stop his truck so I could take a pic so didn't have long.
Now, top left of the second pic is what I'm fairly sure is an egg. Having not seen one before I can only go by the description and it ticked all the boxes, including the texture.
So my question is, what was it doing there? Would it have been taken/moved by the snake holding it in its mouth?
