Nessie - Back to the Picture & Rebus Puzzles
A monster snake, 45 m long, hides under water. The picture below shows the area where the monster is hidden. Each square represents 1 meter. Parts of the snake’s body are connected horizontally or vertically across the squares on the picture below. Above the surface, there is only his head (1), tail (45) and 23rd meter part of body (23). The yellow numbers on the margins show how many squares are occupied by the snake’s body parts in the corresponding row or column. Black squares are stones, where the snake can't be.
So where is the snake?

Huh?
in the picture under the spoiler icon, I have edited the answer's image. I placed the yellow squares where the image suggests the body parts are.
but within the red circle I found no possible ways to get this answer following the riddles rules.

could you clear this up

I'm missing something. What rule is being broken?

the rule that the parts must be two spaces apart either diagonally, horizontally, and vertically. unless the pieces can be placed the way a knight in chess moves, the above answer (or me) is incorrect.

Parts of his body are connected horizontally or vertically. The parts do not touch one another, not even diagonally.



How can he body parts be connected but not be touching? Do the parameters need clarification or am I missing something here? Did it mean that, EXCEPT for adjacent (connected) body parts, no body parts are touching?
