Snake with a mouse full


Snakes Galore

Watch where you step! In the last week or so, Eagles Nest has had a dozen calls about snakes in the bathroom, snakes in the roof, snakes in the chook pen, snakes and more snakes.

If you see a snake usually the best method is to leave it be. As long as nobody is in danger, the snake should pass by or move on when it is ready. It is when you corner them that they become most dangerous.

If you feel like you are in danger, please call the appropriate handler to catch the snake. Do not attempt to handle the snake, even if you believe it to be non-venomous.

If you are bitten by a snake, call Triple-0 as soon as possible.

Note: Most snake handlers are weary when it comes to venomous snakes, it only takes a second to get bitten. If you are not qualified with no experience but think you can catch it. DONT, leave it to the experts.
