Last week while doing the washing I heard some rustling behind the laundry tub. I knew straight away what it was. A snake keeping cool during the hot weather.
We have had them come in the back door making a bee line for our washing machine where they curl up to keep cool. This one was a red belly black snake and did not want to leave.
We tried leaving the back door open three nights in a row plus all the days and there was no hint it was leaving.
So in the end I called a snake catcher. It had been 5 days and I was not prepared to wait any longer to get my laundry back. Plus this is an area we have to walk through every time we need the toilet or bathroom.
The snake catcher came out and asked me to give him a hand by tipping the washing machine to one side while he grabbed it from underneath.
It was all over and done with in less than 5 minutes and I just had time to run and get the camera to get these couple of photos.
Well either way I am glad it has left our place. If it had just stayed outside he could have stayed.
