OK……. I admit it! In the last 10 years of bush walking I’ve only once seen a snake. And that one was on the road at the entrance to the park. By the time I had told a few friends about the encounter it was as large as this Australian speed hump!
The lady at the end of our street had three of them in her yard during last summer’s drought. I think the snakes were after water from her swimming pool! She sold the house and moved out of the neighbourhood the same year.
Another lady spotted the following incident between a wallaby and a snake over her back fence.
The snake was rather lethargic after such a large meal.
