This is the view out of the door that leads through the shade house to our garage. It's the main door that we use to come and go from the house.
But the other day when I went to go out I got quite a surprise as I went to step out the door. This 1.2 m Red Belly Black Snake was having a nice little sun bake right in front of the door on the door mat.
He/She did not stick around and headed off into the garden.
However when hubby went to put on a load of washing later on it had decided to get out of the heat (38 degrees) and have a sleep behind the washing machine. We had to spend the day keeping an eye on it but eventually when it cooled down it went back out side.
