Nessie - Back to the New Puzzles
A monster snake, 45 m long, is hidden under water. Parts of his body are connected horizontally or vertically. The parts do not touch one another, not even diagonally. Above the surface, there is only his head (1), tail (45) and one part of body (23). The yellow numbers express the count of parts in the current row or column. Black squares are stones, where the snake can't be. So where is the snake?

Spoiler for Solution

I think this puzzle is poorly worded. If "parts do not touch each other, not even diagonally" that suggests two things.
1) There are spaces between parts, or
2) the snake never turns or else it would touch "diagonally" at any 90 degree turn.

yes better wording would be "snake body parts can only touch (orthogonally or diagonally) the body part 1 or 2 segments in front or behind them, not any body parts farther along on the snake"
