Snake season
« on: September 16, 2015, 10:07:54 AM »
So just letting every one know reptiles are on the move again . So walk extra loud wear some good boots ,socks and long pants carry a pressure immobilisation bandage. Most Australian snakes are very secretive have poor eye sight and small fangs. snake bites are generally a result of some one trying to capture or kill the animal unless they feel cornered they will always try to flee before they fight

A timely warning.
They are always a bit cold, hungry and stroppy when they first come out of hibernation so best to be careful.
The rest of the season they hear you first and vanish.

Last Sunday when I was driving down the street this bloke was out on the nature strip with what I thought, at first, was a fat hose, but turned out to be his pet python! I did a double take and had to have another look by driving past again. I think he was giving it a bit of sun - rarely seen in these parts (down south) for some months.

I caught one last night at home. In a bag at the moment. It can go sightseeing with me today. Only a small carpet snake, but I don't want it as a pet.
Every bit of nothing I find is still all mine, but Im happy to share it.

Got to be a bit careful down here in February, Tiger Snake Breeding season they tend to get a bit aggressive.
We are a family of 4 from Southern Tasmania.

Off tomorrow on a MinSoc/Illawarra Club trip.  Will report how active the brown snakes on cold days.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

In the past that was in a hole I was digging. Not fun to turn up the next morning and find a squatter in the hole, especially a brown snake.

I saw more snakes in 3 summer months in Tassie than 22 years wandering around the bush in the Army. Big Black mothers. Fortunately they were all going away from me. (At least those that I saw!!)
Attachment is a Tassie Tiger (snake).

Life is not about the final destination, but the journey taken.
