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


Yeah, I think we need some clarification. You said the parts of his body are connected, but that they don't touch... how is this possible?

the following wording might be better:
A sea serpent, 45 metres long, lies hidden under the surface of the water. The animal is bent horizontally and vertically, but doesn't touch itself anywhere, not even diagonally. Its head (1) and tail (45) are visible, as well as one other part of its body (23). The figures outside the diagram indicate how many parts of the snake can be found in each row or column. The black squares are rocks where the animal can't be. Can you establish its exact position?

Yes, much more sense. In other words, it doesn't crossover itself or use the same square twice. Thanks for clarifying.

i have another solution. go me...

i basically get paid to wait for phone calls and peruse this website =)

now if only i could figure out how to post this as a spoiler.

Spoiler for ...


How would that work? The serpent would take up 8 places in the first row, however the rules state that it only can take up one... Second row only takes up three, where the rules say 6 etc.

Hooray! I've completed it without looking at the spoilers.

At the begining, I stuck at the body number 4, then able to complete it after have found the hint from the first column "7" and last row "1".

What a snake! :P

The square lines divide the body parts of the snake, but going diagonally will not cause any harm to the dividing of the snake. It is so because if you cut corners you will disrupt the numbering of the snake parts. Each square is a mm long, so you must find a way to get all of the mm's together to from the snake. This would explain why the numbers already on the squares are there.

This puzzle only took me about 5 minutes, but I liked it nonetheless. More of these, maybe on a larger scale? :)
