The garden also had a visitor a week or so ago. Nicely disguised in the shadows:
DON’T scroll down if you don’t like snakes!
Because you can see it quite clearly in this close up – cropped from the above photo:
It is a dugite – yes, venomous – yes, we kept well away and kept all kids and dog inside (I could see it from the kitchen window) – and yes, we weren’t too worried about it as it was trying to dig its way into the chook yard, but we have snake proof wire at the bottom (extra small holes) so there wasn’t too much concern.
I would have preferred that Michael was home to safely catch and release it though! (He is a licenced reptile relocator – don’t try this at home – call someone who is trained!!)
