Three snakes in three days

Recommended Posts

She retreated into this pot for a couple of days, you can just see her head peeping out

Here is a very recent pic of one of our local snake catchers with a tiger snake found in a back yard.  *shudder*

 

 

snake catcher.jpg I don’t like the look of that one bit.  My brother had a few garter snakes when we were kids and they were little and pretty.  This one in the picture is not. @Toots, shudder for sure.

Prettier than that black one but I’d still want to run a mile.

Rose seems to have made herself quite at home around your place.  😄

That snake has a very wide neck and a big head, oh my gosh.

Tiger snakes flatten their head like that when they feel threatened.  I would hate to be that close to it -  they are the world's 4th most venomous snake IIRC 😱.

Had many, many encounters with snakes over the years, from putting snakes back into the “bush” after they fell in a trench we made, (Main Roads Dept, WA, Broome 1964) Did that job for 3 weeks, most in one day was 17.
Fishing the Beardy Waters in Glen Innes, NSW came across 11 tiger  snakes in one morning, most of them quite lethargic and warming up in the sun. 
Here, in Ball Bay, Qld, we used to get about 3 tree snakes a week in the allamanda vine along the house, until the National Parks people decided to burn off in the NP behind our garden, rarely see any, now.

Cheers, Bobj.

Must be a lot of snakes there. The town is home to about 6,000 residents, and have a number of snake removal services. I might strike that off my retirement list.

Lived there for 22 years but only saw snakes in the Beardy Waters valley and the headwaters of the Macintyre River, which were red bellied black snakes. I don't remember seeing any in the town.

Cheers, Bobj.
