No respect. Poor guy, and snake.
Ran into this juvenile rattlesnake a few days back. Extended me the courtesy of not biting me. Was to young to rattle, so none of the usual “heads up”.
Sad. Poor guy.
Judging by that kids outfit.. she must have quite the vocabulary
....... back in the day it was the Nuns (Sister of Mercy...well as we called them Sisters of No Mercy) that taught us to swear....
Summer in Australia....
How common is this if it makes the news? Looks like he just wanted a hug anyway.
Slow news day. I have had the same species in my suburban back yard as well as Red Belly Blacks on the house steps. The snake catchers have a deal with the news outlets for such stories as it promotes their business and gives the bottom feeders (journalists) and easy story.
Just like the US but the snakes are politicians.
Yeah, lucky she was in town. A similar story happened some years ago on a station out near Charleville QLD, he was a late teen I think that was bitten in bed but didn't survive it.
About 3 feet long.
No poisonous snakes live locally.
Do you have gopher snakes or coach whips?
I looked up both and Def a Gopher Snake!
In 30+ years I’ve only ever seen Racer / ribbon snakes locally. Def cool to see something new!
Awesome! It definitely is cool seeing new and unusual creatures from your area!
