Dear Fred alerted me again today, of a snake in the back yard, close to the house. I went into a flurry of activity, putting Fred safely indoors, grabbing more snake nets to cast over it, phoning for assistance and grabbing long handled shovel. At one stage the snake appeared to be wriggling backwards out of the net, so I had to take swift action, not wanting it to escape. Hmm…. nothing like getting the heart rate pumping! Anyway, I had it pinned down, and then had to wait a further 20 mins for help to arrive. It was then dealt with swiftly, and buried near the other snake. This time it was a brown snake, about four feet long. And yes, they are extremely poisonous. I think this could have been the one I almost stepped on a few weeks ago…. at least I won’t have to worry about this particular one again.
Fred got special thanks once again♥
