Photographer Morten reports about this famous photo of Hanky:
"... so we found a dirty matress and Hank had to lay down naked like Nastasja Kinski in the famous 80's poster by Richard Avedon ... the snake wouldn't lay still so I only got to take 2 exposures before it was away. The owner said it was no danger, but when I turned around he was wet by sweat and shaking and said the snake hadn't been eating for weeks !"
