Go to this linkI am so excited to see this fellow. A beautiful Carpet Python. He was keeping very still and possibly hoping I had not seen him.
The neighbour called round 2 days ago to say he had seen the snake up in one of our trees. I have been carrying my camera around in the hope of spotting him and this afternoon when I was working in the garden I saw him.He certainly has his eye on me. I hope he stays in our garden where he will be safe, as some people hate and are scared of snakes and think the only good snake is a dead one. So sad, as this species is not poisonous and quite harmless. I only hope he doesn’t find our blue tongue lizard.
Many years ago we had a resident python in our garden who came to a very sad end. Go to this link to see his story and other snake encounters we have had.
Today it was glorious spring weather and made even better for me seeing the snake.
Tomorrow rain is forecast again…
