This work is about two snakes and two men who travelled north to Karrkurinkitja.

As the party travelled, some strangers came up behind them and the snakes fled.

Then Kurningka (boss of the Tingari men) went looking.

The clouds were coming towards them.

The snakes were travelling fast and the water was rising.

The lady snake went in the ant's hole but the other snake was left outside.

Kurningka was saying, ‘water is coming closer’ but the other snake was too big for the hole.

Kurningka cut the snake and a lot of fat came out.
