Surprise Visitor


A few nights ago my wife nearly trod on a 5 foot Brown Snake underneath our house. It is one of the world's most deadly and aggressive snakes. The serpent then vanished into our junk room.
A phone call to WIRES (Wildlife Rescue Service) brought out snake handler Paul who quickly caught it amongst the garden tools.
Our dangerous friend has been released out into the scrub well away from urban areas, however, the family are still very wary about going downstairs.
Sorry about the poor quality image, taken with a phone camera.

  5. Not surprised you are wary! I have two rules with snakes, 1 avoid them, 2 never get a hold of either end. Here in England this is not really a problem, few people ever see one, I have not in the last 15 or so years and I get out into the country often. Leeds in photos
