Clue #1: The snake grew up all over because dad moved a lot. Got their head shaved at school where discipline was taught.

Challenge #1: In 30min they were to replicate the pteroglyph puzzle.
FAIL

Clue #2: When their marriage ended & things fell apart the snake traveled to Africa & got a fresh start.

Challenge #2: They tried finding 7 boards to build a ramp system so they could retrieve the clue located in between 2 trees within 20min.
PASS
