Snake?
Snake? Really?
Yep


I was merrily playing the xbox when my GF said "Hey baby, is that a snake?"

I glanced over and a few feet away there it was. Quick little thing it was too. About 40cm long, which doesn't sound like much, but still big enough to deserve respect.

My first thought was to give it a wack, but since I have a touch of the Buddhist in me, I felt it wasn't right just to kill it just for being a snake. Besides I had no idea if was harmless or dangerous.

My snake handling skills are non-existent and my identification about the same, so instead of smacking it, we rang a snake catcher up. I wasn't going to take a 50-50 chance of playing with a potentially deadly snake for my first time.

The catcher turned up, mentioned it was an adult Golden Crowned snake - mildly venomous (not fatal) but painful if bit with a guaranteed hospital trip and managed to eventually snatch him. I'm glad I didn't give him a whack (that's the buddhist in me. Not fair to kill something for simply existing) plus it was in a bad mood and would have bitten given the chance. It was not only quick, but very, very annoyed. He put up quite a fight.

Normally the handler charges about a $100 dollars for removal, but he was a local on his way home and did it for free. The snake got to live, and we didn't have to pay. Win all round. Very nice of the bloke to not charge.

Aside from a few different markings, that type of snake looks very similar to a particular snake that is 100% fatal to humans. I wasn't afraid of it, just not stupid enough to mess with something I wasn't sure about. I kept an eye on it and maintained my distance


(PS - Snakes are extremely uncommon in my area. Especially when found in a living room, slithering around bare feet )

Wow Patrick, that was very brave of you. If it was me, I'd have ran 10 miles away just by looking at the snake.

Ha! Its getting warm here again - 39 degrees tommorrow - and the Eastern Brown snakes are back out in force. Snake-catchers charge $155 a call-out, but I keep the spade handy. Its deadly and with a pair of kids about, I'm not taking chances. Apologies to my Buddist and other animal-loving friends

While I was living in Louisiana I kept a .44 loaded with snake shot. Quite effective.

When the 3ft. Copperheads are sitting at your door step waiting for you to feed the cat in the morning 6-8 times a year... well let's just say the cats appreciate regaining their stoop.

I also hate to kill anything but this one attacked to me when i was looking for brown mushrooms.

Very poisonous,you have max 1 hour to go on hospital for the antiofiko serum.

He had a lizard in his stomach.
