    Default SNAKE!!!!!!!!!!!! Aaaaaarrrggggghhhhh

    So I hear the dogs going apeshit and it's not the usual "possum in a tree" type sound. It's more like a "possum right in front of me" sound.

    So I walk up to the door and I can see the dogs facing each other about a metre apart and lunging at something in the middle. I cant see what it is but Im thinking, oh the mongrels have a lizard or something I better save it.

    I open the door and there is a bloody snake there! I yelled at the dogs to get the hell away from it and quickly put them in the washhouse.

    Then, contrary to how I believed I would act (i.e. killing it), I chucked a roasting tray over the top of it. As I was lowering it, the stupid thing moved real quick and gave me a very big fright and made me a bit shaky.

    Dogs are now safely inside, and snake is under the tray awaiting the OH coming home from footy so we can release it down the road.

    I rang a snake catcher and they think it sounds like a white crown snake but said hard to tell without a pic.

    For anyone who is interested though, it is a dark coloured snake (lighting isnt good so cant tell exact colour) with a light coloured stripe on the back of its head (white or yellow). Its about 30 or 40 cms long and quite thin.

    Apparently, they are mildly venoumous but reluctant to bite, prefering to head butt. They are also nocturnal which would explain being out at night.

    Pretty exciting. I want to get a photo but I am now too scared to remove the roasting tray in case it "gets me" - despite the fact that I could stand in such a way as to be well out of striking distance LOL

    Also, if the dogs had been bitten....how would I know? Would they have yelped? Or what should I look out for?

    For us further south it is quite typical for the snakes to move about quite a bit after the little cold spell and now warm again.......

    I loathe snakes and I am a complete chicken with them..........I just rely on our cranky geese, I rather suffer all the inconvenience they give. So far the last two years no snakes in the garden (touch wood, again and again)

    Well the OH came home and wanted a shovel to cut it in half. I said no, so he refused to move it. He said he didnt mind killing it but he wasnt moving the fing thing.

    So I gave him the camera and I went round and found various implements to flip the tray so we could get a picture. Then I went and put my shoes on. Then I just went outside and lifted the tray off with my hands LOL.

    It was gone. I have noticed as I lifted the tray that one of the pavers was lower so there was a bit of a gap.

    I was holding the tray and thinking it was a bit stink, then the OH said "Its in the tray" and I threw the tray LMAO but he was just joking.

    Anyway, I imagine its floating round somewhere round th eback yard.

    I just want to know how it got up by the back door. The dogs were both lying right there...I mean, did it not see them?

    I never understand why people think it's okay to kill a snake. What is the cost of you getting caught shoveling it in half bernie? since it's illegal.

    Good on you Lala for not killing it
